Why do you want to capture through Elements and then send it to Premiere Pro?
As far as cameras go, you mentioned web casting. If you’re primary target is that then you don’t really need a $2500.00 dollar camera. You could probably get buy with a MiniDV cam in the $500.00-$750.00 range. If you are going to show this on a TV via a DVD or something of that nature then you would probably want to go with a nicer camera. One of the better low light cameras out there is Sony’s VX2000. These are very good when filming in darker than normal situations. If you’re taping in a room with normal lighting, then you could get by with Canons and Pannys too. For the most part it really depends on your budget as to which way you should go.
Anyway… once you have your camera problem solved, all you do is record to tape and then just capture through Premiere Pro. That program is capable of doing that too. You don’t need Elements to capture DV footage to your PC.
Perhapes you can give us some dollar numbers that are within your budget so that some of us can give you some ideas.
