i'm not rich-so those crazy video cameras that are like 10 thousand i can't get.

mainly, i need a camera so i can do LIVE streaming on ustream. Also, video editing and youtube stuff is obviously in the mix as well. i DO NOT have an apple pc. i have an HP notebook with no FIREWIRE port so i use a card adapter for the FIREWIRE port. i haven't even got Windows 7 to recognize my friend's video camera (Sony HDR-FX7) yet-LOL.

i'm probably going to have to a buy a used video camera. any suggestions on what i should start out with and learn with? video and audio doesn't have to be the best, but i need something that looks and sounds pro you know? also, the ability to do live streams is a MUST.

any suggestions are very much appreciated.
