    I purchased the Panasonic SDR-H40 HDD video camera for $300. It is recommended by consumer reports and many other companies. It was my first HD (40GB) camera. It is very user friendly and produces pretty good quality. Its also cheap and is compatible with iMovie (mpeg2.)

    Kodak is apparently coming out with a 720p camera similar to the Flip. Expect price is under $200 I believe.

    Why would you think you need to wait for Blu-ray before getting a camera? If you intend to edit your HD on a Mac, your choices of burning to Blu-ray disc is limited to using Toast and an Adobe Encore CS3 (looks like it comes with Premier Pro).

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    that's strange guac, it works great on my new 24" iMac! I never used the software it came with. I use imovie08. Once I open a new project it detects the camera and allows me to upload everything. The software is the only thing that is not compatible. It also allows me to burn data from the camera to a disc.
