    that camera is not natively compatible with final cut studio... it records h.264 (like the canon dslr's) and must be converted before you do anything with it in FCS.

    Tight

    My budget is very tight. $350 is the highest I will go, but I'd like to try cheaper right now. I don't know what features I'd need either. I'm just starting out, and just need a Camera to get some practice in, and later I can probably buy some better stuff later like extra lens, a mic, etc.

    Thanks,
    Caleb.

    go used (maybe even SD mini-DV) or some sort of flip cam (or one you linked to before).

    do not spend money on lenses for cams this cheap... it is throwing money away. with this budget, you don't really get to have a checklist of "must-have" options. it is really whatever you can find.
