Hey guys,

I'm looking for suggestions here: What is a good cheap HD 24p camcorder that is compatible with FCP? ($1500 or less)

It's not that a Camcorder is or is not compatible with an editing system.

Some cams shoot to a format that can be edited directly (JVC w/ MOV wrapper) And some cams shoot to a format that needs to be converted b/4 editing.

I would suggest you buy the best AVCHD camcorder you can afford.
Look into the Panny HMC series.

Don't forget:

Extra Battery
Camera bag
UV Filter
SD Cards
Card Reader

Not to mention everything else.
As you shoot to cards your need for Hard Drives will rise as well.
