Sorry if this has been mentioned a lot. I used search but some posts date back a couple years. I'm ready to spend up to $600.00 on a quality camcorder for home/live use. I'll be recording my band for demo videos, so it would have to be clear in low light settings. I've read that some aren't compatible with external hard drives and/or Macs. I have a 2008 iMac. I'd also like the best examples of interfaces and the like. I've done plenty of audio recording but this will be my first attempts at video editing.
