Hey there everyone, i'm not a regular poster here, but my guess is that at least one of you around here is a Digital Video buff.;)

Heres the deal. I'm looking for a Digital Video Camera. I would like it to be in MiniDv format. I have looked at a few including the Canon ZR50MC, Canon ZR45MC , Sharp VLWD450U and the Panasonic PVDC152.

If you look at the cameras, you could probably tell that i'm looking for a cheaper camera within the 400-500 dollar range. I plan on using this camera to make skate videos. So if the camera can have a fisheye lens attached. If any of you have any other suggestions for un-costly cameras, please suggest them!

Ps - Are there any cameras that support both USB and Firewire for uploading video to your PC?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you all.
