Default Which pocket-sized portable HD camcorder

A choice, so far, between the:

2. Kodak Zi8
3. Creative Vado HD
4. Flip UltraHD

. Kodak and JVC have 720p/60fps recording, no monitor higher than 720p in our house so 1080p doesn't make a difference to me!
. Both the JVC and Kodak can take high quality images.
. The Creative has a wide angled lens
. JVC and Kodak have hugely upgradable memory.

So far I am swayed to the JVC as YouTube videos show it has high quality with natural colours, whilst being slightly more crisp than the Kodak. The creative only has a wide angled lens as a plus which doesn't really persuade me, and the Flip is just a plain HD camcorder with no additional features or advanced video settings.

I will use it to record me and my friends messing around on the last days of school and when we go out, so it will be used outdoors and indoors.

I don't want to spend more than 150 on the camcorder as I still need to purchase a SDHC 16GB Class 6 card which sets me back 30 - 40

Which do you guys think I should get?

After a long debate I think I'm going to get the Kodak Zi8 from the positive reviews it has had.
