Help deciding what camcorder to buy?

ok. I want something that is very easy to get onto the computer. Once I get it onto the computer I want to be able to edit it easily and be able to upload it onto youtube. I am thinking hdd but I dont know if its easy to get onto the computer. I think Sd and dvd camcorders are out of the picture for me. What do you think would be good. My price range is about 500$ or less.

The problem here is your budget but one did just make it. But can you stand its quirks?

For Youtuber's I suggest the Canon zr500, zr800 and if microphone inputs are a non-issue the other zr8xx models.

Those are quite out of my price range. I guess I am looking for a 30 gig hard drive camcorder. Any suggestions?

(NT) The zr500 is well inside your budget.
