Decent HD camcorder and external mic


Standard Member
Guys wondered if anybody can help?

I am looking to buy a decent HD video camera to help take videos of interviews and reviews etc. Think I need an external mic as well.

Don't want handy cam or anything too heavy either.

Any suggestions?

Canon XA10
Canon XF100 (smaller)
Canon XF300 (bigger)
Sony PMW-EX1 (good quality)
Sony PMW-EX3 (less good quality)
DSLR? 5D MKii, 7D etc

Panasonic AG-HPX250
Canon XL H1
JVC GY-HM100 (fairly cheap and small)
Sony NX70U (pretty compact etc)

The first 6 I have used etc, the last 5 I have not.

As harry said though, budget??? For all I know you may really want a £25,000 PMW-500.
