I've had a Canon XM2 for a number of years - it's been great, but i get the feeling that it's finally time to upgrade to HD. Any ideas out there about a good new camera for under £3,000?? Ideally would like to move to card based storage rather than mini-dv. Although I'm open to your views on that as well. I'd like to start editing straight away when I get home rather than capture the tape footage for 3 or 4 hours!
I suppose something along the lines of the XM2 would be good - it had the option to just 'point and shoot', but with plenty of features as well when necessary.
I'm using Pinnacle 14 at the moment so hoping that will be compatible and work well with whatever I purchase.
