Hi all. I have a few questions I hope you can help me with. I need to buy a pocket camcorder. I've looked on the web, read reviews(seem a bit contradictory) and have been a bit dazed by the sheer number of choices. Any input on:

1)choice of pocket camcorder (given--it does not have to be waterproof, I'm using it to record both indoor and outdoor activity, like to keep it under $140, like to have good quality picture, good battery life, good memory and easy controls.

2)where is the best place to buy said object?

Thanks in advance for your opinions.

Why settle on a video only camera. Most point and shoot cameras are capable of excellent video.
You didn't say if you need HD, if not
this nikon for $99 might be a good choice

This sony with 720p HD video

Or this one

Canon

Or 720 HD $99 with a case

And

My pick would be this panasonic for $99

Or any panasonic for that matter

Oh yes, I would like HD.

I already have a lovely Canon that I use for still photography (and it will do for now). I'm looking for something that is smaller in profile and that I can operate one-handed if possible. The plot thickens...
