Hi Chadillac – you might want to take a look at the $500 Panasonic FZ200 still/video camera.  It has a 24x zoom and a mic jack for an external mic if you want better sound.  It also has a constant f2.8 lens for good performance in low light.

 

Here it is recording deer in an Idaho park (please watch at 720p):

Here it is on a pheasant hunt in the snow:

 

 

 

 

I have an earlier version of this camera and, for the price, it produces great video.

 

Hope this is helpful,

 

Bill
