The Canon XF300 and the above mentioned Sony FS100 are good cameras, especially if you plan to make a business out of video. Also consider the Panasonic AC130 and the soon-to-be-available JVC HM600. However, if the XF300 is too expensive, then all these cameras will be too expensive.

The Sony HC1 is a first generation consumer HD camcorder. If you want something like the HC1 but with a better picture quality, then consider the Sony HDR PJ710V or CX760V, the Canon HF G10 or the Panasonic HC-X900K. Even the Canon HF M500 and the Panasonic HC-V700 which sell for around $500 perform significantly better than the HC1. These tiny consumer camcorders all yield excellent images in adequate lighting and are quite convenient to use.

[QUOTE=Nate Haustein;1740439
I would perhaps step away from the XF100 (and definitely the 105) as you don't really need a "broadcast" codec for what you're doing, and your computer might struggle with the MXF files.[/QUOTE]

MXF files are much easier to handle and edit than AVCHD, so not sure where you get that info from.

No so much talking about computer horsepower, but more so today's widespread compatibility of AVCHD and virtually every modern NLE. The Canon MXF isn't quite as easy to ingest in some cases.
