Need Help finding a new camcorder!

by pgowder / August 14, 2007 3:10 AM PDT

'm looking to buy a new camcorder, but need some help narrowing down all the choices.

Currently I use 2 Sony Handycams. Mostly I use these for 2 things. I do live webcasts on my website, Then I also record some videos to post on also.

You can see the archive of these here:

I'd now like to have another camcorder to record with and just use the 2 I have for the webcasts.

So I'd like to have a camcorder that has the ability to connect a external mic, wired remote, and lenses (especially wide angle).

And I'd like to be able to use it as a backup for webcasts, so having firewire is important. Unless I can do this with USB 2.0

And to cut down on my editing time, I'd like to move a hard drive camcorder.

HD is nice but I don't know if it is worth the money for what I'm doing.

So any recommendations on models?

Thanks in advance!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
