DV cameras

The student society I am part of is planning to buy a DV camera: can people suggest the best buys (pl. give reasons). The budget is around UK # 2,000.

I suggest the Sony vx-1000. It has 500 line res. and is a 3ccd digital camcorder. it's pretty cheap right now on ebay for about $2,000 used and is a perfect intro pro/sumer camera.... p.s also if your going for a film look it can do that too.

canon and a whole bunch of others
