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.
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.
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.
