my Panasonic pv-gs320. Its an awesome cam to learn on, really easy to use. Its not HD but it is 3ccd so you get pretty good colours. MINT condition, I've used it maybe 12-15 hours. Comes with a wide angle lens, tapes, case, ect. Check my threads. PM me if your interested.
I dunno your skill level, budget, or anything since you didn't give any information at all... But the Canon HV40 is a sick cam! It's tape, but it's nice having a physical copy of your footage, and plus HDV video is much easier on your computer to edit than AVCHD footy that most SD cams these days use... But other than that, it's got great colors, full HD, and plenty of other features that will allow you to delve a little into manual settings without overwhelming you. Definitely a sick camera for a beginner and even for slightly more advanced users with a lower budget!
