What i recommend is a camera that hooks up to your computer with USB cable, NOT firewire. Something such as the little Flip cameras, though probably not so cheap. I have a camera like a Flip, but it’s from Aiptek. Seriously, USB is faster than most people give it credit for. I go USB on everything from camera hook-ups to external drives and flash drives.
For software, go with Adobe CS4 as you said, or Sony Vegas 8 Pro. Vegas doesn’t import your footage like most software programs do, in my opinion, and it is much faster to edit, add basic transitions andtweak your edits. The whole process is great from what I understand of your position.
Go get ’em and good luck! chris
