The above site avoids the BS and puts down real numbers for the most part.
I will warn you now, that under$300 and good motion video with HD is not likely going to happen. You will probably want to chance a used older camera off ebay and get some good video processing software. Cost of the total package will be upwards of $1,000 to $1,500 to get acceptable HD video that doesn't have jumping focus, interlaced artifacts, or just bad motion artifacts.
You will want 60 frames/second for good video, short of that 60 fields deinterlaced to 60 frames. I have not found a cheaper (or free) deinterlacer that works as well as VLC. I end up saving the video in 1080i mpg and using vlc to watch it. If i convert it to 60 frames from my video editing software, the results are fair, but not nearly as good as 1080i deinterlaced with vlc.
I gave my in laws a toshiba X100 for xmas, because they wanted a cheapo that they could use and not worry about losing a $1,000 camcorder, and its good for what it cost, but the video blurs from too slow focus response, poor motion compression, image stabilization is completely absent, and the thing never quite looks "sharp". All that said its worlds ahead of a SD video.
