We think you might also be interested in some of the other Full HD camcorders currently available including the Aiptek ProjectorCam C25 which has better reviews; or the Sony HDR-AS30VE which is cheaper.

If you want a camcorder that is Full HD then you might also want to consider the Sony HDR-AS200 ($221.97).
