You can get an HD camcorder for $25? I guess image sensors have gotten really really cheap.
Clearance item, not-a-known-brand, no zoom, lousy mic... but it was a camera and it recorded to Quicktime which made life simple.
I went up to Microcenter yesterday to find the new camera. It was in a locked case so I had to wait 20+ minutes for a sales guy to finish to upselling some clueless dad-type on an extended warranty and virus protection and a new printer and whatever... before he could get to me.
Then I spent the rest of yesterday figuring out how to get a usable file format out of it.
I think it will be going back to the pound.
