Alright, I'm going to go through my story, feel free to skip down to the actually question. So I was going to buy an HD cam corder a while back just to start working with HD film as 640x480 looks like poo. So I stumbled upon the Flip UltraHD. I go into reviews and what's not, and it sounds good. But I think, maybe there are alternatives. So I stumble upon the Kodak Zi8. I read reviews and I'm like, damn, this is way better than the UltraHD. So I'm like, okay good, Zi8 it is. But then I hear about the Sony Bloggie CM5. I was amazed that it had 5x Optical zoom. I heard that it's preformance was sub-par and the Creative Vado was better. Then I notice the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG102. And now I'm here. So, bottom line is that I want a good pocket HD Camcorder for under $250. (Memory optional.) I'm leaning towards the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG102. I was wonder what your choice pocket HD cam would be.
