Hello all. I am hoping you folks may be able to help me in my search for a HD video camera that has an external mic jack input. I have done some searching and not found many if any at all that are suitable that do have an external mic input, so perhaps im missing a gem out there that you guys might know of. Ideally looking for the following features... Price: ~ £280-£350 or of cause less. Storage: SD(any type)/flash ~8gb. Video: 1080p in an easy to edit format, something like wmv/avi. Audio: 3.5mm jack for external mic. Extras: optical or digital zoom (optical prefered), screw hole for tripod fixture, lcd viewing screen, support for still shots. Mainly for use around the office and not outside. DV Cams are a possibaility although we are trying to move away from the need of having DV tapes to something more convienent such as SD cards etc. Look forward to any help or input Many thanks.
