It goes without saying that if any of these cameras become outdated (because their successor has since be released) it's probably not a bad idea to check out the newest version of each camera listed. Again, these are just recommendations based on what I've personally used, or researched. As you can see, I'm also very partial to Canon, Panasonic and Sony - which for my money, produce the best video equipment available. But visit some of the above linked websites, NewEgg, B&H, and Amazon - coupled with any info from - and make your own conclusions and decisions.

Good hunting!
