We are looking for a camera primarily for the purpose of recording interviews. I have heard that it is a good idea to use an external microphone. However, it appears that most of the inexpensive camcorders do not have external mic jacks.

Anyone have a recommendation for a quality camera with an external mic jack under, say, $300?

Also, if someone wanted to recommend an external mic to go with it, that would be great.

I agree with kenrivers on the camera, i`m using it`s predecessor and they work great..
I don`t necessarily agree with his choice in mic tho,...

But i need to know more about how you will do most your interviews.
will you be the cameraman and the interviewer or will you have help?

are you the only interviewer there? or are there others?
mostly inside or outside?
