The only HD camcorder you could get is the Sony HC1. It is $1500. No accessories.
You could try and find the Panasonic GS400 or wait for the GS500. Very good consumer cams. Not going to be great in low light.
You could save some money and get into the Panasonic AG-DVC30, Canon GL2, Sony VX2100 class.
I have made tons of home videos of family trips through the years, and what bugs me every time I watch them again is how poor the video quality is (bad color saturation, terrible low light quality, etc). So for a very long time, i was thinking to myself, ''wouldn't it be great to shoot family outings with movie quality results?''
I'm not even an ameteur videographer, but do have creative instincts and an eye for good visuals. Thus, I am considering any type of consumer/prosumer camcorder that can turn all my future family outings into Steven Soderbergh directorial efforts. Don't laugh. Budget: $1000 - 1500 with approp accessories.
