BTW - It seems MS Movemaker with SP2 update offers video capture from camcorders into various web friendly formats for free. I am downloading it as we schpeek.

MiniDV does in fact capture line fairly well but at the distances necessary to capture the cast progressing over the water it takes either cameraman with a tripod or a far off shot like Dana's recent one. I can really appreciate how well everything came togehter for Dana on that beautiful casting video he just put up with lighting, background and of course a graceful cast.

Sure isn't the easiest thing to capture good casting video!
