We got a new camcorder today - the panasonic HDC-tm700. They've come a long long way since I was a kid - but what hasn't technology-wise?
It's got the HD and 3 sensors, which used to be a feature you could only get on cameras costing a few thousand clams.

I plan on using this for audiopropellor extensively - I'm going to do a few videos on recording drums and mixing them.
Of course it beats the pants off of the iPhone camera, which I've been using for all of my performance videos.
It also has timelapse on it, which my wonderful wife listed as her first requirement - as this was her birthday present! It also has audio inputs and outputs and adjustable parameters for the onboard 5.1 microphone.
