    iMovie will do what you're looking for.

    As for camcorders, without knowing a price range, I can't make any recommendations. But from what you sound like, it would probably be best to just head to Best Buy or another store like that and look for yourself. To be honest, at small prices ($200-$400), the cameras are almost all the same in terms of what kind of video you can get out of the thing.
