    If you can still get an HDR-HC1 or HVR-A1 I would get one of these. I love my HDR-HC1. I haven't looked to much at the HDR-HC3.

    Checkout this forum and make your decision based on what others say.

    Happy hunting,

    Personally, I'm waiting to see Sony's and Panasonic's AVCHD camcorders, looking for HD in that price range... Only problem with Sony's is seems they won't have FireWire jacks.

    I noticed the reviewers mentioned no external mic jack on the model you're looking at. Don't know if that matters to you. (Would to me.)

    I don't know if any NLEs accommodate the AVCHD (MPEG4) codec yet. I wouldn't think so yet (the camcorders aren't even out yet), but seems they would have to at some point.

    Good luck!
