I'm trying to decide what camcorder is best with an external mic for making product review videos and uploading to youtube. I'd like to stay in the $200-$300 price range. My main concern is the external mic as most camcorders do not have good sound when relying on the internal mic. Any suggestions? I've done some research and really like the new JVC Addixxion, but it apparently does not come with an external mic or an output for an adapter for an external mic. I've read reviews until I'm blue in the face and still can't seem to make a decision. When I try to shop at local stores it seems none of the employees have any idea as to how the camcorders work, the battery life or if they can be used with an external mic. After shopping locally and online and reading reviews, I decided maybe asking my question in a forum would help me make my decision. I tried using the Flip camera a while back and the sound was horrible, you could hear the scratching of my fingers on the case and all other background sounds, but not so much my voice. Any suggestions?
