My 17 year old wants a digital camcorder to make a film. She is very interested in the Canon XL1S--but it's so expensive. She is very committed to this career (and enthusiastic), and I want to support her in this, but any thoughts or advice on a first-camera purchase. Thanks

If you daughter wants to make a film, she should do it with a video camera. This site is devoted to digital still cameras, but there's a companion site at http://www.dvspot.com where they might have some help for you. Good luck!
