canon models are ok - they don't last long but...
(very consumer) but...
the "z" models - not all have mic mounts
i would never buy used in that price range - only higher
my friend he digs jvc
i think the picture is flatter than canon
we both dislike sony cause of picture flattness
personally i like the sound quality of my vidster but...
b + h is my recommendation (they ship of course)

if ur more interested in the sound quality u could buy a dat
and a less expensive cam - 250 or whatever
dat sound is a little tinie for me but good durable sound
and it can b filtered out later to sound warmer
mics are super important choose wisely for ur needs
