Unfortunately YES, you are SOL. As manufacturers continue to lower the prices on their camcorders they continue to remove features that we used to take for granted. Also missing on some of these newer cheaper models are:
1. S-Video jacks
2. LANC jacks
3. Headphone jack
4. Decent low-light performance
You have to be real careful when you shop for a camcorder these days. They ain’t what they used to be.
