There are a couple Sony HDV cameras under 5 grand, not by much though. I have worked with the Panny HVX200 and I actually kind of like it, for a smaller format camcorder. The P2 part I'm not crazy about, but that's just because it doesn't work well for my particular needs and workflow. If you shoot short-form stuff, and not too often, however, the 2-slot P2 system may be all you need. If you are talking about shooting many hours, I'd go with a firestore hard drive instead. But the camera is nice and gives a pretty picture. You can shoot SD DV tape with it when you don't need HD. Or shoot to an external hard drive. JVC has a funky, long-looking camcorder that can shoot HDV to tape and/or hard drive at the same time, no flash cards. Saw a demo in the studio, not a bad setup. First time I saw a Fujinon lens I didn't hate!:-)

If you are in a large market city, you could try renting a couple different ones, one for each time you need it, then you'd have a track record of experiences to make a better-educated choice with.
