    "Good" and "cheap" are very subjective terms. How much you are willing to spend?

    Hehe...absolutely!
    I'm guessing the best cheap one you can buy??!! (Not that this really helps!) but out of all the cheap ones, which one is the best?! Yes, budget is needed.

    I can strongly recommend the Sony DCR-HC21 mini-dv camcorder. Lists for 399.99, but I recently purchased one for 338.00 (including shipping). Literally small enough to fit into a pocket, but full featured, even including image stabilization and NightShot filming. Have had one previous Sony camcorder and a few other brands over the years, but am the most impressed and pleased with the DCR-HC21.

    I've owned a Canon miniDV cam for about 5 years....works pretty good still.

    You should post some more requirements so you can get a better answer....

    Why do you continue to ignore my post and pm's? We had a deal to trade my iSight for your Airport Express, you received the iSight Oct. 5 and never sent my Airport. Care to explain?
