I need a camcorder that shoots in 1080 HD AVCHD format. The camera needs an external mic jack that is 3.4 mm to connect a lav mic or even a wireless receiver. It has to have optical zoom and manual focus. (Can have auto also.) This camera also needs a HDMI port that allows for the camera to send a live video signal into a 2.6GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB Retina Macbook Pro into a program such as Boinx TV. Please tell me if the Canon Vixia HF G30 or a similar camera would work for this. Would I also need a Blackmagic video capture card in this process? Thank you for the help.

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
