Alright, I have finally convinced myself that I need a camcorder of my own (actually the person loaning
me their XL1 needs to sell it). So now I need your help. I would really like to get a camera that has
manual controls (focus and zoom rings). Also, I would love to be able to get an HDV one. After using
the XL1 for a while, the picture to me just didn't seem to POP! Although I have a smallish budget (less
then or equal to $1000), I'm hoping to be able to afford something capable of giving me that WOW
FACTOR I am looking for...
