Suggestions on Video Cameras Wanted!

I need a camcorder for school so that I can tape myself practicing my skills. (No...I am not that vain that I want to "tape myself"!) HAHA!

So I am debating on what I should get. I don't want to spend TOO much money, but I definitely want it to be worth the money. Hopefully I will be able to use it for fun and not just school. I could spend a little extra money and purchase a Flip. (which is shown below...yes it is pink because let's be honest...if I could a Flip it would be the pink one!) picture from

Or...I could be cheap and get something else. I'm not even sure what the something else would be at this second, but there are plenty of camcorders that are cheaper.

Do any of you know anything about camcorders and have suggestions? I really don't even know where to start when looking at these. I've heard that the Flip is good, but is it worth the extra money? I am willing to spend it if that's what the rest of the world thinks is the best way to go. Thanks for the input! :-)


  1. Hey girl! I had to buy a camera to, so I could tape myself practicing counseling. I was going to buy the FLIP also, but I decided not to. I compared all the cheaper priced cameras and what they did and stuff. I read that the FLIP isn't that sensitive when picking up sound or have the greatest video quality. I bought a tripod (around $17) and bought a JVC handycam. It uses a SD memory card. I'm not sure of the model, but it was between $200-$230 (I believe).

    It's also easy to use. The quality and sound are pretty good. It's really small, and really fun to play with!

  2. Ewww, I remember having to videotape myself. I hated looking at myself of film.

    We have a flip cam (and by we, I mean husband has it over in Afghanland and hopefully has used it once in the past 6 months!). I didn't get a lot of time to play with it, but the times we did, I liked it.

  3. I have a flip and I really like it. I actually thought it was pretty cheap compared to most camcorders out there, but I got one that only records up to an hour.
