HD Camcorders - Good place to buy?

I have no in depth knowledge about what is a good one and what is a bad one but I need a HD Camcorder on a budget.

No more than CHF 500

I don't need anything crazy fancy, just one to do the job. Main use is as I'm a Web Designer - to create video clips that can be integrated into web games and websites.

Any tip of a good place to go in Switzerland for Camcorders? With a big selection? I'm in the Biel area, willing to travel

Thanks

Re: HD Camcorders - Good place to buy?

if you don't mind the lack of manual controls, i'd recommend the 'budget' miniture cams such as the flip digital and similar offerings from sony/creative/kodak.

the quality is excellent. only downside for me is the lack of audio input on the flip, but an external sound device and a clapper board can fix that

yeah. i had a 'proper' cam. the flip is much better, no messing with tape etc.

i was also tempted to get a 550D for video. that would also be excellent.
