Just ordered one, $99 out the door, will arrive in 2-4 business days

There's also a payment plan of $4.17 per month, 0% interest for 24 months if lump sum payment up front is a problem.

VideoPad by NCH has a free version for non-commercial use.

I haven't tested many of it's features yet, but it allows selecting audio input separate from video input so, for instance, using an inexpensive HD VideoCam (Microsoft LifeCam) while selecting more quality audio (Presonus AudioBox One w/ a nice mic) is possible and easy.

i've been using a Flipcam video recorder for 5 years now...the company folded--smartphones do video as-good or better...but the flipcam is easy and provides acceptable sound & image...it got mine new for $35 at walmart...they show up on craigslist...very easy to use--press the record button to start recording, press it again to stop recording...the lens has a modest zoom ability...a usb thingie flips out (thus 'flipcam') to connect to your computer without any need for cables...runs on AA batteries...comes with integral editing software--titling, editing, combining shorts clips to make longer videos etc.

I recently came across a couple of videos by Adam Rafferty (steel string) going into detail about his recording setup. I found it very informative (as if I might ever do a video!) and thought it might be good for others new to the technology. Check him out on the Tube.
