You might want to try CamcorderInfo as a source of information about
consumer grade camcorders.
HDV may be more than what you need. Without knowing more about your
budget (for example, I don't know whether you want to spend $2000 or
$20,000) and specific technical requirements, it's difficult to say.

Video editing software is sort of a personal choice. If you check the
"Editing HDV" section of my Web page (URL in sig), I think that you'll
find that most of the products listed will edit SD (standard
definition) video just fine on a notebook computer.
