|I'm currently looking for a new one lol. But, I'm looking for the rugged models...waterproof, shockproof, etc. Learned the hard way with my old one on what I need.
So, I've been looking around like crazy. What type are you looking for though? Something that can fit in your pocket or would you not mind something heftier?
I have heard a lot of good reviews from the Flip camcorders. They're not expensive and apparently shoot nice HD videos. They're not waterproof, so I don't have one though.
Oh, wanted to add, do you care for zoom? If so, I don't think Flips have zoom...or at least they didn't, not sure about the newer ones. If you do want zoom, try to get an optical zoom. Digital zoom is not worth it at all. And be careful of some sneaky language around zoom. Some will advertise like a 10x zoom and say optical, but it really only has 5x optical zoom but will zoom an additional 5x digitally.
There are so many camcorders to choose from nowadays. It's really hard to choose!
