    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!!!
    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:


    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.
