I film instructional DVDs and I am looking for a camera with microphone input so I can use an external mic to reduce road background noise. I want one that records to a card, not a tape, and I would greatly prefer it to record in .avi, not .mov. I don't need a huge zoom, 3x is fine, nothing else special. Of course, I'd like it to be fairly cheap - under 300$ for sure, under 200$ would be great. I'm in kind of a hurry so if anyone could respond ASAP I'd appreciate it!
