Extra cams that mesh well w JVC GY-HM700?

Greets All,

I'm going to be recording a couple of events, and since I cannot yet afford clones of myself, need more stationary units so I have options to cut from at the end of the night.
Given that the Canon 7d, ect, are limited to 12 minutes (Major SUCK!) they are not doable for me , no matter how much I want them to be. (Are there any motion capable DSLRs that don't have this time limit??)

My main cam is the jvc 700, and I was curious to hear from other folks who have shot events by themselves, and had several other stationary cams recording alternate angles.

I look at these pro-sumer cams, and while the paper specs sound good, every time I actually pick one up in my hand, I am like,, "Lordy! Where are the controls!?!" haha..I know I really only need to use them on interior events, so really its a fire & forget scenario, but my head is always trying to figure out multiple uses for my gear...*sigh*

My budget right now does not allow for me to get anything over about a grand a piece ( I am trying to get at least a 3 to 4 cam set up, counting my current cam.)

So these are out for now.... :-(
Canon Reveals Their Next Pro Video Cam at DVInfo.net

any suggestions on something that, while may not be the best for actually using, if left alone to sit and shoot by itself, may give me something of a decent picture. ( would need a manual zoom/iso, so the camera's computer dosn't try anything funny in the middle of the show!)

Any info would be appreciated very much! (been on my mind all summer)
