I'm not sure if this is the right forum to be posting under, if it is not I apologize.
I am basically looking for a decent digital camcorder (preferably HD) for $300 and under. I want a camera that will:
-Download the recorded video to my computer (so that I can edit them, save them to the computer, and put the edited video on a website like youtube)
-Very clear video (not too concerned about the zoom as I am about clarity and night clarity. I also care more about quality sound than zoom).
-Abundant recording time
What camcorder should I purchase? I would prefer a bigger name such as Canon, Sony, etc.
