Get a $500 SOny FireWire DV camera? Seriously, I got a great little Sony DV camera at the Apple store when I bought my wife's iBook, just plug the firewire cable from the camera into the iBook, an diMovie just sicked it right up.

Really neat, really simple.

You could run the video into the Sony DV camera, record it, then just import it into iMovie. Burning a DVD should be trivial.

Haven't had to edit my movies (yet - just strung together sequences of scenes), but iMovie was plenty adequate. Not sure about platform-neutral results, but I suspect if iMovie couldn't ahdle it, it should be a sub-$100 problem.
