I have been publishing videos on my website using my old digital camera to record video.
Now I would like to be able to publish videos in better quality and to get better sound in my recordings.
Being new to camcorders everything is a little confusing. Especially because I am not looking for simply "the best camcorder" but for one that suites my needs for a good price.
So what are my needs
– To record and publish video in a decent quality (it is the video sharing sites that sets the standards here)
– To be able to connect a separate microphone (very important)
– To have easy and fast transfer to a computer for editing (a HD or flash solution would be great)
Almost all the videos will show my hands as I am describing how to do something, so I guess that the camcorder don’t need a lens with a very wide range. As long as quality is OK within a couple of meters a am satisfied.
My thoughts are that I don’t wanna ruin my self buying more than I need.
So any suggestions on the perfect camcorder for the small time Internet video publisher?

You can use any HDV camera to make HD video for Internet.
I use Canon HV20 for example. It costs under $1000.
It works quite good for a "consumer" level HD camera.
I managed to make some good video with it using tripod if
sunlight is good enough.
I transfer video to PC, deinterlace and resize to format 1280x720p,
than I usually encode video using Windows Media Pro encoder or QuickTime Pro.
One can use AVC (H.264) codec.
How about sharing HD video clips on a Web ?
You do not believe it is possible?
See new web site for HD video clip sharing
A common video format on this site is 1280x720p WindowsMedia or QuickTime
At a bit rate about 3 MBits video looks quite decent.
You can even upload you HD video clip there if you follow instructions.
