Im looking to buy a new camcorder. I want it to be true 16:9 and have a good mic, prefer the option of external. So far I have been looking at the Canon 800 series as they are 16:9 but have no external mic and a reputation for noisey internal one. The new Sony 39 and 42 are also 16:9 but do not have an external mic! I can't believe Sony have dropped this feature as even the cheaper Sony models had a mic input..... any other suggestions for £400 or less?
