Hi, I'm a 13 year old student who is graduating middle school soon and going to a high school specializing in video communications and production. I currently use the family camera (JVC GR-D850) and I want a better camera to use. It's kind of funny that I have Adobe AE and Final Cut Express, but not a good camcorder. :-/ I'm looking at HD camcorders, but preferably not MiniDV, because if I have a lot of footage, I have to go through the pain of waiting for the footage to capture, where as if I get a Flash Memory or HDD, it's easier and I can get things done faster. I was looking online at the new Sanyo HD line, specifically the HD-2000. It's only $600 for a full 1080p HD camcorder with a mic in jack. I also read some other posts here and saw the Canon Vixia HV-300. Also same price on Amazon and full HD, but it is MiniDV and the audio recording doesn't look too great on it compared to the Sanyo. So any suggestions? I'm looking to spend $400-800. Thanks!
