What DV Cam is good for digitizing?

Need to digitize DV into my G5 for final cut pro. it's a home system.
don't need a lot of features on the camera. mainly, i just need a deck, but would like the option to shoot when i need it.

don't want to spend a lot, but need some measure of quality.

any ideas?

Any Mini DV camera with a firewire connection will do. There will be no difference in picture quality between the cheap camcorder and your aquisition camera when you capture to your computer. I use a small Sony camcorder for capturing that I bought at Sears. It was brand new but was missing some items that I didn't need anyway, so they sold it to me at a very reduced price.

Always better to wear out an inexpensive camcorder than to use your aquisition camera as a tape deck.

Hi Jim,

I took Don's advice and I bought a Canon ZR100 only, from B&H Photo just for that reason.
