Sony Handycam HDR-PJ760V is spendy, but worth every cent

In both features and price, Sony’s Handycam HDR-PJ760V falls squarely between the consumer and higher end prosumer worlds.

Panasonic didn’t get everything right with this model, but I found this camcorder generally easy to use. It shoots exceptional video, and comes with a lot of well-implemented extras.
