There are no video cameras that record on film.
It looks like you are looking in the sub $1,000 range although both cameras you mention appear to have been superseded. B&H has a Panasonic HDC-SD100K and a Sony HDR-HC9, but does not have the models you mention.
At this point, it's not clear to me what you are looking for, but I suspect you will not find a "perfect" HD camera at this price level.
I'm trying to find an HD camcorder that meets a couple specifications.
First, it needs to work with and apple.
And it needs to record to film for easier editing.
Needs a microphone input
Needs to film well indoors and be very good at macro filming
Does anyone know of an HD camera to fit my needs? Thank you.
I'm currently looking at the Panasonic HDC-SD100E and the Sony Handycam
