>>But the hv30 is full hd, (not the 1000u) will I be able to edit full hd in final cut express?

HV30 is HDV, which is 1440 x 1080. “Full HD” is 1920 x 1080. But HDVwill make excellent DVD’s and Internet.

It depends on your application. If you want the full HD spec you will need a minimum of AVCHD with a 24/25 Mbps bitrate (and do not settle for 17 Mbps, which will degrade your quality). Canon HFS 10 is an excellent choice for AVCHD.

P2 and SxS rigs are higher quality still, but they are $$$.

You should be able to edit any of those in FCP.
