First of all this site has a lot of useful/helpful information, however the amount of posts about members camcorders is few and far between. Most are about how to extract from other media which to me seems a little strange. So I have to ask do members actully own a camcorder and edit and produce their own work or not. Just asking as I do my own.
for anyone interested this is my setup I use the most

1= Azden smx -30v microphone (fantastic variable dial from stereo to directional )
2= Panasonic VW-HU1 Handle on a
3= Panasonic HC-X1500 camcorder
4= Manfrotto Befree live tripod ( has built in ball adjustment for getting level)
5= Remote switch on handle for on/off /zoom
The whole aim is to go for carrying a light setup with a 4K camcorder.
I do have a small Panasonic microphone as well VW-VMS10 if not too windy leaving the hot shot for extra lighting if wanted

The reason we don't get too many posts about camcorders anymore is the fact that most people use their smart phones now to film events. But I feel your frustration as there are still some of us that use real video cameras.Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence -Carl Sagan
A little while back I was doing some travelling and wanted to shoot video, I could have done it with my phone, but I wanted to try 4k 60fps, I also wanted a camera that wouldn't be so expensive that if something happened to it, I'd lose my mind. So, I bought a cheap Chinese camcorder on Amazon. A "Yisence Tech" video camera. I expected it to be poor at best and I was delighted to find it's actually not bad at all. I was very happy with the results. Then a friend of mine was having his 60th birthday party and had 2 live bands. I set it up on a Tripod and connected a USB battery pack to the camera and mic and it worked fantastic. I even took some night vision video with it. A total of about 4 hours of video and it came out great. It's not comparable to the high-end video cameras but, if you want one that you don't really care if you drop it or it gets stolen, you can pick these up on Amazon for around $150 USD.It's not important the problem be solved, only that the blame for the mistake is assigned correctly
