If you are shooting single frame, I would suggest an LCD monitor. They use a different system than the older TV style monitors and you won't get the familiar " scanner lines " you do when you try to take a picture off a TV.

How it would work with the video camera in 'movie mode', I can not say, but it would only take a few minutes to shoot some tape and find out. You might even be able to ask at your local electronics store is you could try it there, if they have the necessary equipment ( they will do anything that might lead to a sale).

  I want to use a video camera to record navigations of websites, so I can zoom in to get big clear text and graphics. Can anyone advise the best way to do this? Will I have frame-rate problems shooting off an LCD panel? If so, what's the solution? Any other considerations?
