For prosumer stuff, if you are shooting outdoors (i.e. lot of light) the Sony HVR-A1 should be considered. Is small, perfect for action shots like shooting from the ground or event “on board” in the skate.
In the consumer field, the Canon HV 40 / HV 30 are good choices.
I am planning to buy this one and with good light it is said to be excellent.
These are HDV tape cameras. I don’t know about AVCHD.
