Thought I would share a video I recorded today from the
Speed HD7z High Definition Digital Camcorder Camera $US200.
5 Mega Pixels , 5x Optical Zoom, Huge 3" LCD.
With Huge Memory Support upto 8GB SDHC
I used a normal 2Gb SD card - which can record 1 hour at 720p.
The video camera uses standard easy to get Lithium ion batteries. Records in .mov format.
Zoom and focus is a bit noisey but the camera only costs around US$200 and the video quality is pretty good.
Even converted to dvd quality and played on a 720p widescreen tv it looks very nice.
