I'm using a Cannon FS 300, I believe its called. Its far from perfect but has been getting me by for now.
It doesn't zoom in or out as much as I would like and doesn't gather light very well in low light conditions, but its less than three hundred bucks, is small and compact and pretty easy to use.
I edit using imovie on my imac and upload directly to youtube for any movie under ten minutes in length. Over ten minutes goes to itunes then I upload using google (youtube).
