I am looking for a camcorder for under $150 for my son who likes to make little videos. He wants to be able to upload the video to his computer and edit them. He does have Microsoft movie maker. What would you suggest, the kind that have the USB port or the ones that record on to SD cards? Also what type of file should the recording be in, so you can edit it? Sorry I have no idea about editing features. Any camcorder suggest would be appreciated.

If you are looking for a simple camcorder for fun little videos, and not for professional ones, I would reccomend the Kodak Playsport HD Camcorder. For the price, its is a nice little camcorder that shoots in 1080p and takes 5 MP stills. It connects to your computer via USB, so you can easily transfer the videos and pictures to your computer, and has an expandable memory slot so you can hold more videos and pictures at a time. It's also waterproof up to 10 feet, which is always a fun little feature. Great starter camera for fun videos to share with friends, family, and on the internet.

I forgot to mention, it comes with its own simple video editing software, though I am unsure of how good the software is.

thanks for the info. I was considering the Kodak or the flip. But I didn't know if either used the moviemaker software, and I didn't know how their editing software worked. I currently have a camcorder that writes to dvd's, and you can not edit it at all on the camcorder or computer. So editing is a huge part of my choice. Thanks.
