Budget camcorder with analogue audio inputs?

I want to make some short video recordings for YouTube. Don't need HD or very high quality video quality. My problem is high SPL levels that overload the typically poor quality built-in mics that camcorders tend to have.

Right now I have some very good analogue recording hardware and can tame that high SPL and get a suitable stereo line level signal. But I need to get that analogue stereo line level into the camcorder, in sync with the video.

I can find quite a lot of digital camcorders that look the part, but am having trouble finding out about analogue audio inputs to over-ride the built-in mic.

Anyone been down this path, or know the market well-enough to offer advice?

Well, after hours of trying different search combinations within Google, I finally found something suitable: Q3HD Handy Video Recorder

Just thought I'd post an update here.



Seems to be one of the few with external audio input AND defeatable AGC (which is necessary for me). Annoyingly the non-HD version lacked the audio input. £199 and already ordered.
