Well, I went out that day and tested the camcorders, to me, there wasn't much of a difference in noise level for me between the Sony and Panasonic, maybe a bit. And so I bought the Panasonic only because it was on sale and it had a internal memory(takes less power and it will work in loud environments). If I'm not not satisfied, and I am really satisfied, I'll return it. It does have a bit of noise but it's not too noticable. It's better than my Panasonic HDC-HS60 which I had returned.
But now I got another problem, I heard that the software that comes with the camcorder does not keep the video quality after extracting it. Is this true? I can't really tell. What would be a easy-to-use software that can keep the video quality? I'm willing to spend some money on the software so I don't mind if it is not free. Also the 5.1ch seems to be echoing some of the noise. How can I fix this?

I was looking at the sony handycams and the panasonic hdc-tm700. Do all sony handycams perform good under low light and very low light conidions? Do all the handycams give the same quality pictures because of the examor sensor and how does that compare to panasonic's 3mos sensor?
These are the camcorders I was looking at:
What's the better sensor, 3MOS or Exmor R?
Thanks for any help.
