$1,500 Video camera, wireless mic, suggestions

I have $1,500 to buy a video camera and a wireless external microphone. Video camera will be used on a tripod or handheld to record people giving training sessions in an office, people making a meal in a kitchen, a person sitting at a table being interviewed, and people gardening outside.

These will NOT be professional quality productions. They will have a personal-family quality.

Lighting will always be good.

I would like to be able to zoom in.

Recording time may be up to 90 minutes.

The camera won't get wet, won't be subjected to harsh treatment, only operator ineptitude.

The videos will be edited and used for posting on Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook and a website.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank You!
