"You would be surprised what about $100 gets you..."3.5 starson by Wisconsin99
Pros: It's dead simple - it's small - it's 720 It is so-called HD.
Cons: The only negative, when compared to the Kodak or Flip HD cams is that the bite rate is obviously lower, but then it is about 50% less. Here is a little test: wetstuff.com/camera/HDcam_test.htm
Summary: If I were suggesting a cheap cam to a friend who was never going to turn into video fiend - this is the one I'd tell them to get. I also like this 'cigarette pack' style for casual shooting instead of those wing-out cameras.
