You can get a standard def


You can get a standard definition Canon GL2 for $2,500 or less, and maybe an older model used XL1 – if you want decent glass, features and to stay with SD.

You can move into a decent HDV environment with the Canon HV30; and spend $4 and you can go tapeless with memory cards in the new Panasonic AG-HMC150 AVCHD camera. A few Sony advocates on these boards have a variety of models they use and like, in spite of certain trade offs. Perhaps they will chime in.

I use Mac with FCP – you’re looking at a $3K-$4K investment there, but IMHO well worth the investment. PC people seem to give a lot of credence to Vegas editing software particularly.
