I don't know what kind of movie making you do. You are a professional or not? I myself prefer using the Ulead movie maker for my videos that I want to edit.

I still like Serif products ... Movie Plus is pretty good for those wanting a bit more than Movie Maker.

in serif's favour they do concurrent licensing, and the price is not bad either

Too many 'consumer' orientated cameras (with oh so convenient memory cards etc) are in actual fact all but useless when it comes to realistically doing anything creative with the footage.
They are primarily designed for holidaymakers to watch themselves getting sunburnt in Turkey and nothing else.

which [non-minDV] cameras would you suggest for being able to edit with the footage with popular video editing packages ?

I wouldn't, as I have not done the research, but by the same token, I wouldn't go out an buy something which I hadn't researched either.

However, if it were me, I'd find out what formats your chosen software supported (either existing or to be purchased) and work from there, buying a camera with a format that was compatible with said software.
There is of course nothing wrong with MiniDV in the absence of other formats. Fully compatible with anything that's out there.

Depends on your budget but the Flip video cameras are very popular here.

Yes, I'm a bit of a Serif fan myself. I have used MoviePlus in the past and found it perfectly adequate for day to day editing.

My problem with Flip is the lack of Mic-in ... but yes, I do find it the best to use across Mac and Windows.

Well, if you can get free software that'll do the trick - why not!! And we like to spend our money on other, better things!!

I'm currently using Elements 8 to edit AVCHD and I'm not impressed. It's very slow, even with avi files and crashes a lot.

Not sure of an exact date, but I've read it's "soon".
There's a good YouTube video showing the pre-release version in action.
