Unfortunately, you are demanding quite a bit out of a goodcamcorder for you budget, and it comes hard as a research for one that suits your needs. I thought of including your specs listed above and performing a Google search, but frankly, I just don’t know how to say it.
The best I could find was the CanonHV20 (MiniDV cam). I’m not entirely sure if it has Firewire input – one of the most highly overlooked features (from both review articles and camera manufacturers). It doesn’t have A/V input either. And for all of this, I’d certainlyrecommend purchasing a secondcamcorder (such as a cheap JVC Everio – most of them have A/V Input). If you can bare the fact of a used camcorder, I would certainly go for it. Thereare currently several HV30sselling on eBay in the $400 – $600 price range. An Everio is defintely a lot cheaper. You may also need to do a little research to make sure it has A/V input.
