Hello everyone. As stated in the title, I am a complete beginner to all of this, so I would really appreciate any and all advice. I'm planning a documentary-style production as part of a little project I'm working on, but I need some serious help deciding what exactly I need. I've been looking at some camcorders and researching as best I possibly can, and I already have a decent PC that I hope will be able to handle the editing side, so let me run those by you first.

Today, Panasonic announced the new LUMIX DMC-FP8 digital camera as part of its new FP-Series, which pursues excellence in both design and function. The LUMIX FP8, with 12.1 megapixels, features a high-quality 28mm wide-angle, 4.6x Leica DC lens with folding optics* - encased in a futuristic-looking stylish body.
Can someone help me answer a question? I own the Sony FX7; and the instruction manual says that the camera should not be pointed directly at the sun, and that doing so can result in damage to the unit. But lots of videos have shots of the sun in them. In fact, videomaker's Tips and Tricks has an instructional video on shooting the sun. Is there really a risk of damaging my camera? If so, what needs to be done to prevent the damage? Thanks!
I'm looking to buy a camera, and I can't decide from consumer and pro. The Canon hV30 looks good, but I'd prefer the sony Hvr-hd1000u. Does anyone know a place where I could buy a used pro cam? I'm opened to any suggestions.
Thanks in advance,

I have a JVC Everio GZ-MG555, and need a good mic that I can mount on my camera. I'll be talking into it, but I will also be shooting skateboarding videos very often. I know VERY little about this stuff. So what you recommend?
