Sony's mid-range prosumer CX560V should cover just about any amateur shooting needs, and then some. It's built around a large 1/2.88" sensor, putting it a cut above the lower CX series models, and in the same league as the more serious CX700V. It shoots the requisite 1080p at 60 and 24 frames per second, with a 10x, f1.8 lens and a range of manual control -- and, as the 'V' in the name signifies, GPS geo-tagging. It's a solid camera, though we might recommend stepping up to the CX700v for its viewfinder and control dial.
