well, if you watched roddys vid, its pretty obvious we need to ditch the point and shoot and get something a little nicer. any suggestions? looking for something around $1000, new or used, preferably hd, but whatever works... <BR> <BR>were hopefully gonna go half and half on whatever we find, so your input would be awesome. <BR> <BR>(heres the vid if you didnt see it, roddy killed the editing even though the camera was crap) <BR><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFLE3MNNctg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFLE3MNNctg</a>

I appreciate any and all input from you guys. I really need to get into something that will allow me to take my films to the next level...

under $1000, go with Canon. <BR> <BR>if you're OK with tape the HV30 is currently the best quality camera under $3000. It's currently being replaced by the HV40 and can be found for around $560. <BR> <BR>If you prefer tapeless (I personally don't like the AVCHD codec) the HF11 ($850) is getting good reviews although Canon just introduced the HF S10 which is the 1st AVCHD cam I've actually been interested in.
