I used to have the Sanyo VPC-FH1 (non-pistol grip) which was awesome, great video, very good pics both indoor and outdoor, until it got stolen. Although you can't seem to get anymore these days besides maybe ebay or craigslist. I replaced with the panasonic hx-dc1 which is very good outdoors but poor indoors however I believe Panasonic is coming out with a new line soon, hopefully better, but definitely with more features http://panasonic.net/avc/camcorder/active/

I also have a Sony WX10 which is really awesome, 1080i 60fps video, awesome pics, tons of options and is great indoors and outdoors for both pics and videos. Only knock is you can hear the zoom on videos but that seems to be the case with most cameras. On my panasonic, no zoom noise. I'd also throw in whatever you look at, some kind of optical zoom should be included.

Then older (now discontinued) Kodak PlaySport Zx3 was a very highly regarded (non-pistol grip) pocket HD camcorder.

It is on sale at WalMart for a paltry $69 new, free shipping -
this is a bargain
