Hi guys,

I bought a jvc HDD camera a couple of days ago and realized it was the totally wrong choice for what I need.

A part for the HDD problems and that I was just reading about here, it does not have the input for the external mic which I need and it is not compatible with MAC. I can convert files left and right but I much rahter have a mini dv which I NOW understand it the way to do.

Can somebody please recommend a mini DV camcorder with firewire port and external mic (and I guess manual mic controls....).

I need it mainly to shoot training videos to be converted in flash and uploaded to web site and I want to use a mac for editing (final cut or imovie).

I am asking this time instead of making the same mistake...
