Need tapeless replacement for miniDV for use with iMovie5, Std Def, 4:3, Help!!!

I'm still using Apple iMovie5 and a Power PC to make standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio DVD's for industrial training purposes. Historically, I've used miniDV camcorders to aquire the raw content. I want to go tapeless, but still keep everything else the same. Any specific suggestions for camcorders that aquire in SD 4:3 with files compatible with iMovie5 (like .mov files)?? In other words, I need to replace the miniDV capture process and go with something that easily imports into iMovie 5, std def, with 4:3. Help please!!!
