Camera recommendation for usability lab running Morae

I'm currently setting up a new usability lab which will use Morae.  We need to purchase two new video cameras for both in-lab and off-site recording, and I'm looking for a recommendation for a reasonably priced HD camera (<$700) with FireWire IEEE support.

Thanks for your help!

JOB: Looking for a ROCKSTAR UX Designer!

Musician's Friend is a musician's dream job.

Where else can you use your skills to excel at a career you love with friendly, dedicated co-workers who share a common bond? Music is what defines our lives here, and the attitudes and ambitions of our employees prove this.

It might sound a little corny, but at Musican's Friend we are in the business of making dreams come true – and everyone here, from the mail clerk to our legendary cowbell-playing CEO, takes that mission very seriously.

Any Best Practices for Number of Years documents should be available on a web site?

I'm trying to make some recommendations in order to clean up 15 years worth of documents on a web site. The files are mainly government meeting minutes in word format, which overall is taking up quite the chunk of space. I feel 7 or 8 years would be more then sufficient, but would like to have some best practices or examples to back up what I recommend.
 
Anyone know of any such documentation or have had to provide similar recommendations?
 
thanks!

What is the standard to use: Security Code, CVV, CVV2, CVC etc.

I'd like to hear others thoughts on what the "Standard" labeling is for having users submit the number on the back of their credit cards. I have seen some sites show an image of the back of a card but I'm more wondering about the verbiage. Do you feel there is a standard out there now for what to use or what others are leaning towards as s standard.

"Security Code", "CVV", "CVV2", "CVC"?

Re: [IxDA] Wireframes. Creative or technical?

Sorry to bring up an old thread ...

But this is an interesting discussion we run into as do all small
businesses competing against larger agencies. We have been
experiencing this force for 12 years+. I would suggest that most
"small business" (freelance / boutique agency) owners would agree at
this stage in the Digital Media business timeline, that this
consolidation / cross-over happened about 6 years ago.
