I guess the camera depends on what you want to do.
If it’s just average video, a normal consumer cam, but for more professional shoots, or even more important shoots probably a prosumer lik Sony VX2100 or HD.
MiniDV is still the norm but HD is steadily creeping its way in. The only problem is that there is no standard HD format yet. Many are extrememly compressed and hard to edit (just like MPEG) some are only able to be viewed with propirietary software.
What I’m waiting for is an uncompressed full blown HD. That’d be nice.
