I am in the market for a good mini DV camera. My budget is around $1,000...though I don't mind spending a little more to get a good camera. I was wondering if anyone here on the forum had any personal experiences with camcorders in this price range. I'm also gonna pick up Final Cut Express or FCP 4. Is the academic version crippled in anyway in contrast to the "regular" version? I don't know much about this kind of thing at all, a little help will go a long way for me... Thanks in advance!
