I'm about to buy my first video camera. I'm looking for certain functionality which I'll list. I'm wondering if you know fo a reasonably priced camera with these features.
External Mic Input
More Optical Zoom over Digital Zoom
These are the features I know I want, there are a few other things I might not know I need till I get working with shooting video, for now I'm wondering what kinda suggestions you might make, thanks for taking the time to read this thread.
