Help please!!! What pocket camcorder should I buy? Next month I need to record various interviews (in different locations: offices, classrooms... overall with good light conditions) which ultimately will be posted on a website (hence I need the compression to be good!). I am quite desperate since I have no experience whatsoever in this field so any advice will be welcomed and truly appreciated.
In general, I am looking for decent quality video and impeccable audio quality, for the latter I will definetely need a mic input for a lavalier. I have seen Vado HD (but it worries me that a lot of people have complaints on the product because apparently a lot of times out of the box it doesn't even turn on!). The other option I have been looking is the Kodak Playtouch but again the comments are harsher than the ones on the Vado HD.
