    Hi folks,

    I'm very happy, just got a Canon HV20 and I have a couple questions...

    I've used iMovie for a couple of home videos, but I'd like to take the next step and move to FCE HD, with the release of FCP2, is it a good time to buy FCE 3.5 or is there an upgrade soon?

    For the HV20, which accesories should I consider?

    Thanks!

    I think that FCE is still a great deal, and I'm not sure that the recent release of FCP2 will mean any imminent updates to it.

    As for accessories, I'd recommend a good external microphone and a tripod as my two must-haves.

    Thanks for your help, I just checked and with the Edu discount FCE HD full retail i just $149, that's a good deal.

    I will buy an extra battery and the tripod.
