I'm looking for a decent digital camcorder. Not a great one, but a decent one. I want to use it mostly to take videos of my animals (feeding videos, maybe get one on film shedding, stuff like that). It needs to have decent picture quality but I don't need huge storage capacity--half an hour or less. I'd prefer it support some decently lean formats to make uploading the files to the net less painful.
I'd like to not spend more than 300 but I don't know if that's possible.
