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?
