    Default Which HD Mini-Camcoder is the best?

    I want to buy a Mini-Camcorder (like the Flip Mino HD) since Ean liked the grainy look of the video of my last DJTT-article.
    Which one is the best currently?

    The following features would be nice but aren't required:
    - 1080p recording
    - replaceable memory (SD-cards e.g.)

    Really good video quality and dirt cheap - highly recommended mate

    The Mino's don't support Full HD recording and also don't have an SD card.

    I'll look up some reviews of it.

    Currently I'm all hot for the Sony bloggie MHS-CM 5V which is 170 though but offers even optical zoom.

    Sometimes the footage on the Flip's are really wobbly. Not in a hand held kind of way, the footage gets stretched and squashed. It's super annoying and can happen a lot.

    I dont recommended one.

    I heard good things about the Zoom Q3, and the sound of the Zoom units is generaly quite decent for their price, dunno for the video side of this thing

    Why not get a new Canon that shoots video too. They are TOP NOTCH. Plus you can use any lens you'd get for typical Canon cameras and the work just as great for video.

    They may cost a bit more, but the results are beautiful.

    Plus you can get things like low light friendly lenses and get killer video in dark places, or with wacky lighting.

    Seems to me a better way to go than throwing your money down the drain on some of the recent options.
