    JVC usually has pretty good prices....they tend to be last weeks technology but that's where your discounts come from. A hard drive cam holds more stuff than say an SD card cam, but is a bit more expensive.

        Do you have an iPhone or Android? That's all you need. If not maybe one of those Flip HD video cams.
        There is something I want to get off my chest. It's about that summer, when you went away to community college. I got an offer to do Playgirl Magazine, and I did it. I did a full spread for Playgirl Magazine. I mean spread man, I pulled my butt apart and stuff. I was totally nude. it was weird, I... I mean you probably didn't hear about it because I went under the name of Mike Honcho. But I just wanted you to know that. If you can hear me, if it got into your brain somehow. That I spread my buttcheeks as Mike Honcho.

          A video cam that doesn't hold like a video cam....no viewfinder....is a disgrace and no one should use them as a matter of protest....you get poorly framed video and maybe jittery ones too. Get one with a viewfinder that you hold to your eye, and a real lens that zooms in and out.....some digital zoom is OK for way out there, but optical zoom renders far far better video. You don't have to get too spendy to get this good either...250 bux tops. If you get these above suggested pieces of junk it means you just don't care. For gosh sakes get an honest to good camera!

                    I know. I know. I have a big ass Canon DSLR & several Canon lenses already. ...That's what I use when I do "serious" photography. This is something that is geared toward more spontaneous use & its much easier to transport & have on hand for "snapshots" or quick movies. I get what you're saying about true optics & a quality lens. But this new camera didn't cost over $4,000 I have invested in my other gear either.

                    I thought about going the dedicated movie camera route like Jet is thinking about, but I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone with the new camera. If he just wants to shoot JetBoat footage & Windex commercials, I'd imagine this would fit the bill nicely.

                          I can't get to the post office. I sold my car for gas money.
