My Canon Powershot A590IS is about to completely die on me, and it's time for me to consider buying a nicer and newer camera. I've been making some short films recently and I want to get a higher quality cam for that, too. I need a camera in this class that can take 1080p video and shoot high quality photos. I also need it to have an external microphone input so that I can plug something like the RODE VideoMic or VideoMic Pro into it. Having a hot-shoe mount isn't super important -- I can always get a bracket.
Does anybody know of a sub-slr that shoots 1080p video and has an external microphone input?
