Anyone have opinions on digital video cameras that they would care to share?

This is for actual documentary and film-making, not home-video type stuff.

This is something we will need to buy for Jordan's school and work afterwards.

It does NOT need to have a SLR/Still camera function.

The guy at the school suggested a Panasonic Lumix GH2 camera BUT the guy from the school seems really tech-happy in the way like....someone who gets a Swiss army knife with 80 attachments when you really only need a good knife blade.

Price range is preferably under $800 (but I realize that might not be possible.)

All the film school undergrads have DSLRs, generally of the Cannon variety. The 7D, the 5D, and the like. Image quality is very good, it's nicely portable, plenty of lenses, and people are starting to build shoulder rigs and other equipment for it. I'll be shooting my next film on one.
