    HD Camcorder

    I am looking into buying an HD Camcorder under $400. I have done some research, but would like CF's opinion. The most recent thread about HD Camcorders was 2 years ago, so most cameras have evolved by then.

    The footage is for work and all video will be imported into Final Cut Pro X.

    Thoughts?

    I have an HD Sony Bloggie. It was way cheap and it shoots good video with decent sound. I really like it because you can take HD pictures as you are filming.

    Re: HD Camcorder

    I bought this for my girlfriend for Christmas. She is a grade school music teacher and uses it for taping the kids' programs. She seems to like it. It has a ton of storage, the video quality seems pretty good, and you can attach a mic if you want better sound quality.

    Amazon.com: Canon VIXIA HF R20 Full HD Camcorder with 8GB Internal Flash Memory (Black): Camera & Photo

    Note: I got this as part of a deal including a really nice tripod, a carrying case, and a 32 GB SD card for $279.

    But seriously, do you need good sound or zoom? If not, might as well get a GoPro Hero 2 camera. That way, when you're not using it for work, you can also take it on any vacations you might have. Like Colorado or something.
