    Hello all, first off, I didnt know what off-topic section place this thread, so if this section is not suitable, please mods, move it.
    So, I need some advice, I recently started youtubing, and now im getting a bit more into videoing, im looking for a better suitable camcorder, I dont want to pay more than £120 and It needs to be HD.
    It also needs to be mountable with a tripod and I would prefure the videos to Export as a suitable video format (not .MOV)
    Any suggestions?
    I have been looking at the Veho VCC-002HD and the FlipMinoHD, anyone had any experiences with these camcorders?
    Thanks.

    One of the best, smallest, most cost efficient HD cams out there is the Kodak Zi8. I bought mine for $150 and it came with a free 8gb SD card.....the thing is lovely! It's made even better by getting a wide angle lens and external mic.....my lens kit was less than $10 and I bought a bootleg Sony mic off ebay for less than $10 and replaced the mic's inside it for about $16.

    Wow lol i have a zi8 as well. It's nearly the same quality as mino and ultra hd by flip. It exports as .mov but it shouldnt be a problem. I don't think a wide angle lens is good for it since it can break off with enough force since you need to glue it and it has a good wideish view already. Just update the firmware to 1.06 and the lowlight kinda isnt that good but macro mode is awesome

    The FlipMinoHD is brilliant. Everybody on my Drama course has one.
