The list author says: "I bought these cameras, (and others) but these are the few I do not regret. - The manufacturer will tell you the benefits. I'm here to tell you the regrets these things come with as well."
Canon VIXIA HF G10 Full HD Camcorder with HD CMOS Pro and 32GB Internal Flash Memory
1.  Canon VIXIA HF G10 Full HD Camcorder with HD CMOS Pro and 32GB Internal Flash Memory by Canon
The list author says:
  "Great all around. Picture is IDENTICAL to my $8K XL-H1. PROs = Cheapest workhorse with real focus ring and NO "tape capture". Incredibly high quality. (Mathematically 4x the bandwidth of HDV.) || CONS = NO ANALOG VIDEO INPUT. - You cannot play a VCR tape/XBOX game/etc. and record it INTO this camera. LAME!"

2.  Canon VIXIA HF S30 Flash Memory Camcorder with SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer with Powered IS by Canon
The list author says:
  "Next step down from the G10. - You DO IN FACT lose some picture quality. I promise you. - You also lose the focus ring. But for half the cost... having something this close is very cool. - Also has no analog video input."
Used & New from: $492.35

Canon HV20 3MP High Definition MiniDV Camcorder with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom
3.  Canon HV20 3MP High Definition MiniDV Camcorder with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom by Canon
The list author says:
  "The HV-20 is a legend because it can shoot HD for $350, has a bunch of aftermarket professional gear, and a GREAT community of users. YES IT DOES HAVE AN ANALOG VIDEO INPUT! Which means you can attach an external camera such as a hidden cam/helmet cam, or record from a VCR or XBOX etc. - CONS = It uses TAPE and that means a long and painful capture process."
Used & New from: $114.95

Canon XL-H1 3CCD High Definition Camcorder with 20x Optical Zoom
4.  Canon XL-H1 3CCD High Definition Camcorder with 20x Optical Zoom by Canon
The list author says:
  "Great image. If you could only get it OUT of the camera. It uses TAPE. Not the best for image quality OR capturing. It has 3 native 1920 sensors. So to dump THAT quality to TAPE is a crime. The viewfinder  SUCKS. There is a device called a SAMURAI which you can attach so that it captures straight to PRORES that has a 5 inch LCD monitor on it. The combination of the 2 is awesome."
$5,799.88   Used & New from: $1,879.98
