I decided to get a "toy" for my birthday and picked up a Flip Video mino HD. I gotta say, I'm impressed for the size and video capability. 1280x720, not "true" HD, but for my intents it'll be fine. We picked up a JVC HD camcorder about this time last year and it's all well and good, but I just hate the hassle. Hopefully youtube/facebook uploads will be more efficient.
