    Hey everyone, I am going to buy a new video camera soon and I am looking at the Samsung SC-MX20 and the Flip MinoHD. From user experience, which would you recommend? I really like them both, but I feel like I can get more out of the Samsung. If you have any other suggestions I am open to hearing them, thanks!:D

    Samsung:

    If it helps to know, this camera will complement my Aluminum MacBook.:apple:

    haven't used any, but from experience with other camcorders, if you're spending under $250 it probably doesn't matter because they are all gonna be crap. So I'd get the Flip because it's the smallest and coolest looking

    I'd get the Flip since it's cooler and smaller. And it's USB not FireWire, something the Aluminum MBs don't have.

    Funny...you spend....

    over $1600 on a computer, but want to complement it with a CHEAP camcorder? Why not up your budget to at least $500-$700.

    Dumbfounds me :confused:
