A mid-priced ($350 – $500) consumer camcorder is not hard to find. I’d look around at some stores, and also check out JVC’s Everio hard disk camcorder models.

This won’t be a problem, though, if your editing software supports it.Free conversionsoftware is not hard to find either.Here’s a link that should help with this problem.
