In Final Cut Pro you can edit in "real time" by watching all your cameras play at the same time and then you can click to do a "live switch" you can do the same type of thing is Express by putting each of your cameras on a different video track and resizeing them down to 50 percent and then while they are playing press m to add a marker wherever you want to switch cams. Then all you have to do is resize the clips back to 100% and cut out the stuff between the markers.
