Thread: What kind of camera is good for making videos?

  1. Exclamation What kind of camera is good for making videos?

    I'm not ready for a DSLR. They're too pricey for me. Right now I'm looking at a $150 budget for a camera or camcorder that takes HD footage. I found cameras on amazon that fit those criteria. These are the four cameras I found that I'm interested in:

    I'm thinking of point-and-shoot cameras because I can still be using them for still photos because I won't be making videos 100% of the time. I'm also unsure about the Flip and Bloggie cameras. I think they're more suited for blog styles where you just talk straight to the camera. They don't have any optical zoom, which I don't know if it'll be that big of a factor. Can anyone give me some input on what they think of these cameras?
    Check out my videos. Tell me what you think

    We use flip camera at college to record stuff that is "for the record only" and really isn't that good, where as I have a 250 ( $400) camcorder which "under the right conditions" makes fairly decent videos. I would do some reading research then perhaps buy one second hand off ebay?
