Hi, I'e been using my trusted Panasonic NVGS5 for the last few years but it has finally given up the ghost. I use it, along with a helmet cam, when out mountain biking and to be honest its not the simplest task to set it recording from the helmet cam (via the analogue in). I hope to buy a new cam with LANC to make life easier. My question is this..... What Sony/Canon camcorders have LANC and what's the cheapest? I've looked on the Sony and Canon websites and can find little info. Thanks for all your help, Suggs.
