Any suggestions for a consumer HD camera that has analog video outputs, preferably S-VHS. Just want to get a bit more life out of my betacam sp edit set-up.

You can pick up HDMI or SDI downconverters reasonably easily. But really, do you want to be shooting HD and finishing it as SD, these days?

I find I can get ok results when I start with SD and stay SD, so I am presuming equivalent or better if I start with HD, no? It's mainly for youtube.

I think - but don't know from firsthand experience - that something like a Blackmagic "SDI to analog" mini-converter would do it. It does downconversion. It'll give you component, which presumably your SP gear supports.

 

If you need HDMI, you may need to put an HDMI to SDI on the front. I don't think they do a direct HDMI to component, but I suspect someone does.
