Mrs. Bisley has successfully negotiated the pay-off for my new rifle. Now I have to learn something about 'modern' video cameras and how to play them on the TV, and store them for posterity. Here is what I want to accomplish:
- Buy a video camera that she can simply turn on and start shooting standard quality video onto an SD card. Home videos of the grandkids, indoors and outdoors, of a quality that is not noticeably bad.
- Buy a device that can be left connected to the TV that she can simply transfer the SD card to and push a button to play it.
- Buy whatever is necessary to transfer them to a 'mass' storage device that will connect to the computer by USB. Optionally, it would be nice if videos could be played directly from this device to the TV.
I am not totally technologically inept, but I'm heading that way as fast as I can go. I have transferred and edited videos several years ago, when it was a major pain in the butt, but I am now almost completely burned out on anything remotely related to computers.
This new video set-up has to be something I can set up in a few minutes, show her how to use it in five minutes, and walk away from. I've done some Googling, but my foo was weak and I am now confused. Somebody please tell me exactly what I need, tell me I can't have it, or give me some key words to search with.
