Hi, I am a film student at UCSB and am looking to invest in a camcorder for some small video projects, web casts, just to get a some practice editing. I am planning on getting a professional unit in a couple years before I head out to grad school. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am looking to not spend more than $400... HD is not a priority because I can't afford it but I am looking for something with good picture and sound quality and something that will transfer on to my Final Cut express with no problem.... Thanks! I have a Macbook running Leopard.
