also the camera must shoot in High Definition.
I'm looking to buy a professional camcorder for about $2500 or less. The camcorders I have narrowed down to are:
Sony HVR-A1U - $2149
Sony HDR-FX7 - $2499
Panasonic AG-HMC40PU - $2499
My only problems with the Sony FX7 and the Panasonic HMC40 is that they do not come with a good mic and I would have to buy one myself which would cost more money. What is the best camera to buy in this situation? Other than those is there any camera better for about $2500?
