Default Cheap digital camcorder for AutoX?

I'd rather not spend more than $200. I don't mind something used on Ebay but there are about 10 million different ones out there and I have no idea which one is good. Must have image stabilization for racing.

I'm using a Casio Exilim EX-S600 6.0MP. Takes pretty good videos, looks awesome with stabilization, can record to max of memory card. Takes awesome pictures as well, and is small as hell. New was $299, can be found at your price tag: http://www.pricescan.com/digiphoto/i...p?sid=G5115598

Here's a compressed WMV file I took, the avi file is takes looks much better.

My only complaint is the docking bay that must be used to tranfer files, but the battery life is surprisingly good.

Im selling my Panasonic PV-GS55 mini-dv camera. Here is an example (not my auction) http://cgi.ebay.com/Panasonic-PV-GS5...QQcmdZViewItem

I'll sell it to you for $200, and that includes shipping depending on how close to the east coast you live.

It even includes a 512 sd card and a carrying case, all you need is a plug for the charger (get it at radio shack for like $12.00) lemme know.

Dell home has been selling the Canon S2 for under $250 on sale. It shoots 640x480 video at 30fps with image stabilization. Will shoot video until the SD card is full. Video is outstanding IMO.
