Hello all,

I am really trying to find the best Hi DEF Video Camera within the 2000-3000 grand price range... I plan on using Final Cut with it.

I also plan on doing documentaries and using it for freelance videographer work.

What are your suggestions? I checked out B&Hphotovid site and I'm debating between sony hvr-a1u 1/3 with 3 million pixel cmos imager & the sony hdr-fx7.

I also saw the canon xh-a1s but it's going for 3,300... a little over my budget.

Any advice would help...
