Best Consumer Camera for Windos Movie Maker

I think this will apply here, since the questions really does focus around the editing/workflow process of a PC applications.

My sister-in-law is a principle at an elementary school, and her students do a news-cast for what's happening at the school.

They're looking for an easy camera for her students to use, and they currently use Windows Movie Maker for the edit. I'm hoping to switch them to iMovie, but in case that doesn't happen I'm looking for options that will work with what they have.

Any advice for a consumer camera with an easy workflow in Windows Movie Maker would be great! Thanks!

Any MiniDV camcorder - once the video is imported into Windows Movie Maker, it doesn't matter where it came from.

For simple projects, Windows Movie Maker is a good program that is easy to use.

If the camera is going to be used by students, and it doesn't have to be very professional, then any mini dv camcorder will work, If you want to stay on the cheap side, a simple handheld would work fine. When purchasing make sure there is a firewire port for easy and fast uploading to the PC.
