Premiere Pro includes all the capabilities your likely to need, except stabilization. You can get that with Audition, but that program has a learning curve so steep even the most die-hard member of ACE would vomit just looking at it. If really necessary, there are plug-ins you can buy for Premiere Pro that can handle the stabilization. (Of course, a tripod is always your best bet, here.)

Do you mean After Effects here?
Yes I did. Good catch, Bill.

Before you buy anything, go to Google (the forum search doesn't work well) and enter

If something like the GoPro, you MAY have edit problems

A better way is to just download the trial and give it a whirl. If it works there, it'll work after buying.
Hello everyone - thank you for your help here. Here are a few more comments back and I'm all ears if there is additional pertinent feedback.
I use a Sony HD camcorder, consumer level; a Countour+ HD bike camera; Flip Mino HD; and my wife's iPhone. I realize I may have problems with various native formats the devices store, but hopefully not. If so, I will find some sort of conversion workaround for various issues like the one's John noted above.
The problem I have with my current software Corel Videostudio X4 is what happens when I render a project - the video quality goes south. I realize you lose some data any time you render something, but we are talking about another league of bad here. I tried some other trial software products and they do not have the same issues. So knowing I was going to switch to new software, I decided to either get Premiere or buy a Mac/FC. Being a PC user I decided to go the Premiere route. Just wanted to make sure I get the right product on the suite vs. premiere front.
I use a Canon Vixia HFS100 (AVCHD) and my wife has a Flip HD (MP4 - can't remember the camera model #) and files from both work perfectly in PPro CS5
