Cheapest MiniDv Camera with AV-In

I was lookin into this too.

I need RCA (analogue) in as well.

I was able to use, get this: a Dazzle Hollywood DV Bridge hooked to a power converter in the car. Mobile computer equip. Hooked my Ogirional Canon Optura via Firewire to the DV Bridge to the helmet cam.

Not as easy as a mini cam but it worked.

By AV in I guess you mean analogue in, right?
I used a Canon ZR40 that cost me around $400 a year ago. Works great.

The A/V dubbing feature isn't really a guarantee of AV input in the way you're thinking about.

The Canon ZR80 is now $399 list. That's the least expensive or close to it anyway. And it does have AV input. Hope this helps,
