In truth, you don't get into real cameras until you break the 5K mark for price. And a camera is just a part of the equation. Once you figure out the cost of even a meager camera package you're normally around 5~10K depending on which camera you buy.

A 60D might be in your price range for an HDSLR. But you may find some disadvantages to the bare bones HDSLR such as focus and monitoring, as compared to a traditional video camera system. As written earlier, the HDSLRs come into play when you can outfit them with the necessary accessories.
You might also consider renting a camera with your budget. You can look ahead at what projects you have, contact a few rental shops, and divide your 1500 into a few camera rentals. This way you can get the quality of the higher priced cameras without breaking your budget.
