Bump if anyone's looking for like a real cheap camera setup (~$100). A true 3ccd camera, no CMOS sensors. This thing could take a 37mm fisheye, which opens up the door to the baby death lens (a la TRV900). It ain't the best codec, but you can still film 60i and render at 30p for a smoother look.

Suggestions above are very solid. Also here's a thread with a few more suggestions. If you don't wanna go with a DSLR you can look into the consumer style camcorders.
