      i don't know much about cameras but I can tell you that B&H is a very good company.

      being able to record to SD cards sounds really nice.

        Ok girls - Martin picked up our new HD FLIP Video Camcorder today!!!!!!

        Woohoo!!!!

        It has 8GB, 120 mins, internal memory storage. It really is a great size. I shot a couple of quick movies to make sure it would work and looks good! It's great since my Uncle basically split the cost with us - it doesn't feel like a "guilty" splurge, but more like a very FUN wedding gift! I'm so excited and cannot WAIT to try it out both in Mexico AND Jamaica!!! How VERY COOL! Plus, Martin got me this super cool HP laptop that is great for things like making movies, etc. (though I've never tried out those features YET!).

        This is gonna be fun!
        Thanks for everyone's help

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          Hey lady you will have to let everyone know how your Flip does and even upload a video for us.

          I thought I had typed up a response on this but doesn't look like it. Maybe the forum was really slow and it didnt post, that happens every once in a while. I was really trying to encourage you to get the one your uncle (or whomever it was) sent to you. Joe and I are really tech gadget type of people. Up until I bought an SLR we bought a new camera ever 6 months. We get new laptops every year, and we get new cell phones once or twice a year depending on what comes out. I'm REALLY REALLY not a fan of the Flip cameras so i'm really interested in seeing your video and how it turns out.

          Like Morgan said it doesn' have a lot of battery life so you probably wont get alot of your reception unless you have another camera. Also they don't have good focusing and it only has 720p, the one your uncle chose had 1080p for me that would have been it being that they were similar in price.

          We have a good friend who has a degree in film and shoots local commercials, and works at the news station. he also owns a construction company and due to that he cant come to our wedding. I would have LOVED to have him film our wedding. i've really been debating this lately. When you brought this up we started considering something similar. I know you wanted only around $200 but for me I have to go for better even if it costs me an extra $100 cause I always kick myself later for not getting something better. I think we are going to do something similar to this but our friend is going to edit for us. I asked him about a good HD camcorder under $500 and he gave me these 2:

          Sony Handycam DCRSX41 Digital Camcorder - 8GB HDD, 60x Optical Zoom, 2.7" Touch Panel LCD, Blue DCRSX41L at TigerDirect.com

          JVC Everio GZ-HM200 HD Digital Camcorder - 20x Optical Zoom, 2.7" LCD, microSD, SDHC Card, USB, HDMI, Blue GZ-HM200AUS at TigerDirect.com

          Just for future reference of other brides who might consider this option!

          Also as mentioned before you definitely want a tripod it will come out much better for editing!

          I am learning so much about you on this forum just through reading your different posts :) Thank you for the suggestions on camcorders. I really really really want to get a nice one before our big move so that as we travel around we can capture some video! I am willing to spend hours and hours researching but I get frustrated after awhile and tend to give up. I would prefer that whichever one we get has many "key" features but my DH doesn't want to spend much money although he's ALWAYS the guy that will spend more money to get the best quality.

          Thanks goodness I found this thread!
