Can anyone recommend me a reasonable digital camcorder for a few hundred quid?
Its going to be used by teachers to record lessons and such like so doesn't have to be amazing film like quality. SD card or harddrive is fine and an input for an external mic would be nice.
File format is important as we used to have a JVC that produces .mod files that a lot of people seemed to have difficulty with.

Will you be editing the footage? If so what software will you be using to edit it?

I don't think that there will be much editing involved no.
In the past with our old JVC cam, the little editing needed was done with Windows Movie Maker or the supplied software.

We've been buying the Sony DCR-SR range (about £230-£250 for a 60gb Hard Drive Camera) but we edit with Premiere Pro CS4 so these cameras import straight in hence the reason for buying them but we have found the quality to be decent and they havent been a problem for us (students and staff) to use etc

RTFM just did, or is that too expensive. In which case we are back to the good old Flip video.
so come on then recommend me a cheap and cheerful camcorder
Trouble with SDHC is the cards aren't cheap and are easily lost in a school.
