Hey, there's an idea.

Back in the mid '80s I worked with a small company in Bothell, WA called 'DTP Microsystems' that built custom PCs. Their boxes and support was so good I continued to use them at other companies I worked for and later, recommended them to clients. Right now I still work on a PC built by them in about 2000 (still works great) and until last spring did all my surfing on a PC built by them in 1995 or so (forced upgrade due to O/S considerations).

Sometime in the mid '90s DTP started selling Digital Video Gear on a larger scale dba "DVGear" and have come to be well known around here for DV. I suspect Mike Stimmel (original owner/manager) has retired by now but that's where I'll probably go for video info and gear when I get to doing video. Gotta get the DSLR thing done first.

Does anyone know of some freeware/shareware video editing software that will allow you to import video clips, cut, splice, fiddle with, add music, etc? I know I could buy something good, but is there something free that works?

A good source of free software is SourceForge where you can get the source code as well the license to modify it as you see fit. The site used to be easier to navigate but is a bit more difficult to find things now.

I'll second www.BHphoto.com. In a dangerous environment full of many crooks and cons, it's one of THE most respected online stores out there. And within the limited places that are widely recognized as honest, it's one of the lowest price options. My main suppliers of late have been BH and Amazon.

Crative Planet has all kinds of reviews and info. The main feature I use though is the 2-pop forums. You can get answers to any question regarding video cameras, capture, editing, graphics. It's a great resource. Here's the link:

Here's a page to check shutter lag; good if you're looking for a compact camera that you want to be able to point and shoot quickly:
