I use an HC7. It is a great camera for any budget.

HDD? Are you sure?
If you scrap the HDD for DV you can get a high quality DV Cam. Which is most cases alot better then HDD.

I agree with Luminosity. DV offers near broadcast quality and if you get a camera with DV in, you can record back to tape for archiving - just in case your precious recordings on DVD get ruined.
