I am looking at video camera's too. I want a small one, not super expensive with image stabilization. I sawe the Sony Handycam 610, it was $299.00. I have to check with Consumer Reports or maybe someone on here will have one & give their comments.I want it mostly to video the girls in training & their hunt tests.
The flip is so much fun!!!! It's little, the quality is nice enough, I would go the extra little big for the HD. Jeff won ours, so I'm not complaining it's not HD. The kids love to make videos and were just around the house tonight making all kinds of videos. I can trash the ones that are just too crazy. Ya just plug it in to the USB and go. It Rocks!!
Linda, I bought the DD and SIL one made by Memorex for Christmas. Radio Shack had them for less than $100. I didn't know if it would be any good or not. They love it. It's really a nice video camera. Sure is small, too.
