    Hello to all! I am looking for a camcorder to do videos of mostly family and friends. I need it to be cheap, not more than $200 (if thats possible) Thanks! It's not for school.

    Quite honestly, $200 isn't going to get you a quality camera. You might be best served seeing if you can get a used camera for that price.

    I would be very weary of the $200 and under camcorder market. I've said it before and I'll say it again here, in my opinion, the best camcorder for your money in the consumer market are the "PV-GS" camcorders from Panasonic. Look for the ones that have 3CCDs. 3CCDs will give you great color and Panasonic has managed to bring the price of a 3CCD camera down considerably with this line.

    I'm not sure if you will be able to find a used one or anything, again $200 for a camcorder is probably going to just leave you unhappy.

    You could always pick up one of these for $100. A co-worker of mine has one and the image quality isn't that bad considering the price point.
