I'd like to know which pro and prosumer camcorders you use and/or recommend and why. I'm looking at a prosumer/pro (or well above the home video kinds) camcorder and I could only narrow down on the Panasonic three chip camcorders (like GS250) or the Sony ones (not decided on the exact model). Very good low light performance is highly important for me; so is the quality of the video. I'm not at all concerned about still photography since I have a good still digital camera for that. My usage would be for home/hobby (but no, I don't prefer any low end ones). I also prefer 16:9 capability. It seems to me like there is a big gap in price/features between the pro models and the sub-$1000 models. I'm also leaning more towards a three chip camcorder (which may likely have smaller sensors than a single chip one in the same price/feature range). What about HD camcorders? I do have a thought that it might be better to go for a normal camcorder now and upgrade to HD after another 5-7 years (when it would be more common). I'm not overly concerned about the size of the camcorder - of course, if it's moderate, like the Panasonic GS250 or Sony HC40 kinds that'd be good too.
