Pocket camcorders?

I keep seeing a lot of videos on the Cairn Forums I go on and find it great watching the dog's antics - more interesting than a still photo.  I am interested in what these pocket camcorders are like - does anyone have one or know what is a good, cheap, easy to use, easy to share, buy?
[cannot afford much but hope that may get some money as gift at Christmas! mind you there are other more useful things I need to have!]

Worth checking your digital camera or even your mobile phone as many have the facility to record short clips Smiley

Re: Pocket camcorders?

i've just got myself a kodak easyshare m320, 9.2mp, 16gb capacity sd (micro with adapter), which has stills and video function.  i took video with my now defunct cybershot and they worked out quite well.  this new one will give me longer to film and a larger capacity to save.
apart from design, there seems little difference in functionality between a camcorder and a digital camera.

My Olympus digital camera does take video but it uses up battery quickly, they are very short clips [usually just got sorted and it goes off] and they are not very good.
Amazon are reasonable but it knowing which are worthwhile!
