I was recently approved to purchase an HD-camcorder where I work. But I don't know anything about them. I've been checking out features on Amazon, Best Buy, and camcorderinfo, but it feels like everything is comparing apples to oranges and they all have different feature sets.
What I'm using it for: recording special events, and high school projects, webcasts and "commercials" that will be on a website.
Features I want: mic input for a separate microphone, or ability to plug into a sound board.
Price limit: in the $400s.
