I am a big fan of my new Flip UltraHD Camcorder. It records in High Definition Video for up to 2 hours. Powered by 2 rechargable batteries this simple to use camera recharges by plugging it into your computers USB port! So small it can easily fit in a pocket so you are more likely to tote it around with you.
Forget about zooming in...and the microphone won't pick up someone talking way across the room(those are the only negatives). I thoroughly enjoy this and give it my full recommendation.
