    Anyone recommend me a cheap and cheerful video camera. Something cheap enough that I wouldnt be totally gutted if it broke. Sort of 40-60 quid bracket.
    The sort of thing to take to parties when everyone is making a fool of themselves.
    Not bothered about format, something I could just USB into the PC.

    Most digital cameras have a movie mode that rivals the quality of some camcorders and offers the same 640x480 resolution.

    If you have a digital camera all you may need is a larger memory card.

    I'm looking for a HD video camera/camcorder, looking to spend 100-150. Anyone have any recommendations?

    Not sure how much a flip HD is, but they are meant to be alright

    We bought a JVC Everio GZ-E205 last year, have been very pleased with it, fits your price range. Review here

    @SuperCoolEskimo Ah good :) Sadly now you also need to buy a spare hard drive to store all the HD cat / baby funnies on.

    @localnotail What software do you use to burn the mts video files onto DVD-R? Assuming you're doing that with your video files, obviously. Windows DVD maker doesn't like mts files :(

    I haven't tried to burn anything, sorry. Just been transferring them to a hard drive and occasionally upload to youtube.

    Does anyone know of a good one sub 100?
    It's for filming UFOs that I see all the time in the Pentland hills, but my house is a bit far way so I'd need to zoom in.
