I have had a sony camcorder that we have used from when I bought it back in 1996. It died so that is why we are in the market now.
I tend to like Sony products but am open to other suggestions.
I have a JVCGZ-MG37U 30gb hard drive camcorder. It does save the files as .mod But I haven't had any problems uploading them to you tube or viewing them on my computer. I've had it for about 2 years, no problems other than the battery life has diminished, but thats normal with li-ion batterys after time.
There was one time at the drag strip where it wouldn't record the jet truck that was running. I don't know if it was the tremendous noise/vibrations from the jet that caused the hard drive to go into shock protection or if it was the low battery. Has not done it again, I can't stress how loud the jet was and how close we were.
