video camera for video interviewing

I'm looking for a video camera for video interviewing. I need great picture and sound quality but I will be using the camera on a tripod and inside with lighting. I have been mentioned the canon gl-2, sonydsr pd170 or sony hdr fx7. My budget is TIGHT but I want the right camera!

What do you think? what do you sugest???

Get an external microphone. I've found any "budget" camera to have poor sound and you can fix it...

It depends what you need.

The FX7 will give you hi-def video, but limit the audio to a mini jack type mic. That means the mic will be fairly close to the camera.

The PD170 will allow you to use XLR mics, but is limited to std. def. video.

The GL2 will give you mini jack type audio, and std. def. video.

The GL2 is the cheapest. It's selling for about $1,750 at B&H.

All of them are nice, capable cameras.
