Hello,

I've got Pinnacle Studio 9.4.3 on my PC (FX55/2 gig ram/250 HD (16 cache), and was wondering what a good "all-round" camcorder would suit my budget of about £500. I've read about the Panasonic NV-GS150EB in a mag - and has a 5 star rating - and is priced at £464 (inc vat) not looked round yet for latest prices. Is this a good buy? – it has 3 CCD’s BTW

Also, since I'll be recording musical performances a lot - good audio is also of benefit. Are "onboard" mike's on camcorders any good? - and can you had other mikes' to them should you wish?

TIA

Theres a review of 5 camcorders is this months PCA and the recommended Canon DC10 is listed as £499, others are slightly dearer.
What I would do is check out the "What..." magazine for reviews/articles.

Just having a wee read of it and notice it says it has no microphone jack. I'd have a look at What camcorder magazine, you might even find the library has it, some larger ones have a lot of magazines.
