Digital Camera?


I was thinking of buying a better camera so my videos will be better quality (and so I can stop borrowing my mom’s XD). I was looking for something in the $100-$200 (can go up to $250 if necessary) price range. I’d really like it to have:

1.) Optical zoom of at least 5x
2.) Anywhere from 10-12 megapixels
3.) Sorta slim
4.) And be able to record (preferably in HD)

I was looking at the Sony Cyber-shot but I’m not sure yet. Finding one of these at this price is gonna be hard.

Thanks =)

If you want HD and are going to mainly be using your camera for recording, you should be looking for a camcorder instead. Generally most digital cameras have about the same video quality and that isn’t very good, because they are made for picture taking not video recording.

A couple of cheaper, HD camcorders are the Flip MinoHD and Flip UltraHD. I don’t have first-hand experience with these, but from what I see they aren’t so bad for the price. Both come at around $200, but they don’t have optical zoom.
