    Major advice needed for premier system and camcorder.


      Ok, I'm a graphic designer by trade. Been using Adobe products for 20 years, but never really did anything with video. We will be upgrading to CS5 and I have been tasked with getting us into video. I need some opinions on whether to go with HDV (tape), Sony HDR-FX7, or go with an AVCHD camera of similar quality. Also, how well does Premier (cs4) handle the AVCHD format. Lastly, I have read the minimum hardware requirements for premiere, and pass that test barely, what would you suggest as the minimum hardware, that I could tell my IT department, that would get me by without wanting to throw my computer out the window. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
