Fisher,

Take a look at the JVC GYHD200UB. Pro camera, tape based (cheaper by far), but you can use a portable harddrive (cheaper and more space than cards) and now if needed, you can get an SxS adapter. Does 720p standard, 1080i with harddrive or SxS. It’s shoulder mountable and not much heavier than a fully aftermarket rigged XL1s. Broadcast & theatrical quality without the heavy price. B&H has some reasonable kits that will allow you to get the cam and a set AB batteries within or slightly above your price range.
