green screen

Hello All
Is it possible to get a good green screen effect with a DV cam (pd150) and FCP and export the video with an alpha channel. I know how to light a very good green screen, it's the editing part I'm not to sure about. I've been told that DV is not a very good format for keying because of the colour space. I'm trying to keep the price down and that is why I am inquiring and would like to use DV and FCP.
Many Thanks, Aldo

Aldo,
The keying tools in Color are superb if you're running the latest FCS?
