I am an amatuer director,I have done few shortfilms some with simple handy cams and some by hiring professional cinematographers.Now I am thinking about buying a camcorder so that I can do it myself and edit the video myself.My next project involves a lot of stylish sequences and execellent editing.What kind of camera would you guys recommend,I want minimum 3CCD(my budget is bw $700 and $900) video quality so that if needed i can air it in channels.I also request you guys to recommend some easy to use professional editing software,right now I am using Vegas and I had a hard time using it.I expect the the video to have filmy look removing the shakes and all....!

I hope you guys will help me .

I'm using Canon HG10 (bought it for $999, but the price now should be lower as what i saw recently). The video quality is great. Check out the review on the net.
