FYI, here's a really cheap camcorder that could be useful for *hint hint* quick and dirty video recording. It's on sale at your local Big Lots for only $28, but only this Sunday and Monday. It's cheap, so the video quality is not that great, but for $28, it's a pretty sweet deal. It takes SD cards up to 2GB. Resolution is only 320x240 tho.
From a review I read, the pros are: acceptable video quality *for the price*, surprisingly good mic, rotatable 1.5" LCD screen, vids are AVI format, built-in USB connector, Video Out connection. The cons: low video quality, USB 1.1 (slower, not USB 2.0), no built-in memory.
