What a good video camera for short films?? No mor than $ 500.
And whats a good editing tool?? I already have iMovie HD, Final Cut Express HD, and Photoshop. My step mom is a computer teacher and she goes to all those workshops so I could ask her to teach me.

At that budget?
Canon FS100, FS10, ZR900, ZR930, ZR960… and here’s why – they have a mic jack (but sadly, don’t have manual audio control). Sony and Panasonic do not have camcorders at your budget with a mic jack.
What we don’t know is what Mac you are using. The MiniDV tape based ZR-series camcorders are preferred for Macs with a firewire port – this includes ALL Macs made in the last 10 years… but not the newest MacBook and not the MacBook Air. If you have the newest MacBook or MacBook Air, then the flash memory FS series.
