I'm looking to buy a digital camcorder as a gift for someone who uses Mac and is well-versed in Final Cut and other movie/sound programs (since I don't even know what they all are, clearly I am not so skilled). He's more into the sound side of things, so I definitely want a cam that can accommodate those needs. He's by no means a professional and I don't have a lot of money to spend, but I would at least like to get a good quality cam. I've gathered that Canons are poor in low-light settings and that I should be getting something with a jack for an external mic, but other than that, I'm a bit lost. Any suggestions?
