I'm looking to dabble in simple video production to upload to Youtube and share with family members. I ran across a superb video tutorial on Final Cut Pro and it has really piqued my interest. I don't plan on doing anything complicated. I'd like to fool around with it when I'm bored, carry it when I'm on mini trips, film some video tutorials or reviews of products, etc. To that end, I'm looking to purchase a basic but functional camcorder under $400 that can be used directly with Final Cut without having to convert the recorded videos into a format that Final Cut understands, etc. I saw this on Amazon.com - Sanyo Xacti HD1010 4MP MPEG4 High Definition 1080i/1080p Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom by Sanyo Does anyone have first hand experience with this camcorder? Or is there another one around my price range that you would recommend? I'd like to do away with any tape based camcorders. I'd like to simply plug it into my MBP and transfer the videos over and open it in Final Cut without any added hassles. Thanks for any helpful input.
