Recommendation for a low-end video camera
Read the review of the Kodak Zi8 by Derrick Jeror — at Amazon.com. Then read the 69 comments on his review (or at least scan them).
This is an extremely helpful review — it explains how to get the best sound quality for interviews and the best battery life, etc., from this under-$200 video camera. Derrick recommends a lavalier microphone and provides other good tips too.
In one of the comments, he explains why the Flip Mino is better for some applications.
