Mini DV Camera Suggestions

Hey all. I'm looking for a solid Mini DV camera for around 400$. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any. I would mainly use it for video taping the kids, family outings, school plays and sporting events.

Thanks!

External Mic or not?

I'll carve the former discussions down to 2 models for you to look over.

External Mic -> Canon zr800
No external jack -> Canon zr850

Look at the Cnet reviews for details.
