I am looking to purchase a camcorder to capture demonstrations indoors. Lighting would be overhead fluorescent or perhaps localized incandescent. Not talking about nightime or shadows.

I would like high definition (1080) and would like the output to be MPEG-4. The camera doesn't have to be this year's model and I would hope to find one under $200.00 new or refurbished.

What I'm asking in this post is the brand names and model numbers I should be looking at. Have been looking at the Sony 440 and the Canon R700.

What I have read so far--If I understand the specs correctly, the Sony doesn't output mp4 at 1080 and the Canon is not so great in low light.

Leaning towards towards the Canon but thought I would run it past the forum to get any other input.

Oh! And I need a tripod mount as well.

thanks

Well, you're right. So what've you got in the way of suggestions? I'm wanting alternatives.
