So I am looking for a camcorder to make youtube videos, small fun mocumentaries and just general filming. I am looking to spend under 1000 dollars, but like any reasonable human being, I want to get the most for my money. Obviously, of most importance to me is video quality. I am not trying to enter into film festivals or anything, but I would like a camera with nice options that will allow me to grow. The must haves are: external microphone jack, external headphone jack, sd card slot, HD 1080p, video output format compatible with standard video editing software, decent optical zoom, high bit rate, good image stabilization, good low lux filming. I am completely green when it comes to filming, so if there is something that you think is important to add to the must have features, please chime in. I just want a camera capable of shooting great quality video, with the options that are important, and that is not going to be constantly needing repair. Please don't give any high horse answers like "Go to film school." Thanks!!
