1. search at the forums, there have been many discussions about chaep and great minidv cams.
2. minidv = Mini Digital Video, and that is the tapes, there is also DVcam which has larger tapes.

MiniDV is the preferrable option for video formats for a couple of reasons. First, the quality is better than standard video or hi-8 formats, and second, the cameras have a built-in Firewire (IEEE 1394) interface for transferring the footage to your computer. This means that you will not have to buy another piece of hardware to digitize your footage onto the computer.
For the best image quality, you should look at camcorders with 3 CCD's, but they are also quite a bit more expensive than standard 1 CCD models. What you get for the additional cost is better picture quality and color reproduction. Generally, the 3 CCD cameras available are more professional tools overall, as well.

Any DV model will work well with good lighting.
