    Hey,
    I need a good video camera- preferably HD, which can connect via probably firewire (unless plain usb connection works) to Final Cut express HD.
    I had one that was hard disk drive and it didnt work.
    so probably one that records onto mini dvs.
    Any suggestions?
    I love macs.
    but hate the way the cameras are so expensive!!!
    Thanks!
    :apple:
    oh and ps. Not too much money to spend!!!

    Well I'm sure these are out of your price range but i would suggest a Canon:

    -HV20
    -HV30
    -HF10
    -HF100

    But considering your using FCE HD and not FCE 4, I would go for the HV series because i don't think FCE HD supports AVCHD. I'm pretty sure a HV20 can be had for around $500 theses days but I'm not entirely sure. I ended up with a HF10 which produces amazing video and it's video quality is pretty much comparable to the HV series.
