    Plus the Sony Z1u rocks. Pal/NTSC 1080i... works great with Macs.

    The Z1U has a very limited exposure range. The resolution is nice, but I'd rent until something with better DSPs and optics comes along.

    You might want to wait until Panasonic's solid-state DVCPROHD cam comes out, although a bit more expensive. It's a much better compressed HD codec than HDV. Keep in mind HDV requires a really hefty machine to work with. It's so compressed (such a small size, same as standard def DV), it takes a lot of CPU to uncompress on the fly.

    Panasonic's HVX200 (w/the 2 8gig P2 cards bundled) is 2x as much as the Z1U (and it could be more if Sony drops the price when the Panny is released).
