Camcorder that meets these specifications?


Standard Member
Could anybody suggest a camcorder with these specs?

I'm looking for something in between a Speed HD 8Z and a Samsung VP-HMX 20C.
It must have:
Over 30 fps or a slow-motion mode of some sort
HD 1080
Flash storage
Progressive Scan (not interlaced scanning) ie. 1080p not 1080i
10x or more optical zoom
Under £500

The speed Speed HD 8Z looks good, but certain features like 60 fps only works in HD 720 etc. and a lack of zoom.
The VP-HMX 20C looks great but after looking around it seems I can get similar specs for under half of the price!

Also I'm editing on Final Cut, so it needs to be a relatively well recognized file so that i can convert it to QuickTime with DV codec or other accepted files.

Thanks in advance.
