    Need to find a Premier compatible super small HD camera

    jfk00ca Level 1
      I have a 4 year old Panasonic DVX100 (not HD) but it's difficult to travel with because of the size. I'm headed to Venezuela next week and need to quickly find a very small camcorder that can be easily hidden from site. (Risk of mugging is high.) I'll be at the Pan Am championships and also want to be able to zoom in from the stands and still get some decent footage.

      I know these are consumer cameras, but I've been thinking of:
      - Sony HDRSR12 (AVCHD output & 10.2 megapixel still)
      - JVC GZ-HD6U (MPEG-2 TS output)
      - or possibly the Pansonic HDCHS9S (AVCHD output).

      Question: will I have problems importing footage from these cameras into Premier? I have the CS3 Production Suite. Is there another camera I should be looking at?

      Any input or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!

      Thanks!
