I have something very similar to what you've shown, and the biggest issue was the lag between audio and video as I recorded, but it's also a couple of years old now, so it may just be outdated.

Is that the specific compact size you want (like a large cell phone), or would one of the avchd compact style camcorders work?

the new avchd would work also since iLife 08 supports the format now.

If AVCHD is good, I would say Sony is probably a can't go wrong brand. BUt if you have a mac laptop abailable to you, I would take it to the store and see if the Camera you want will actually work with the mac...if they woh't let you test it...move on to the store that will.

Best Buy might be a good place to look too, since they sometimes have Apple stuff now.
