Buy a Fuji S2000HD- it's a good digital still cam and shoots beautiful 720P HD video- much better than any of these sub $300 pocketcams- and the Fuji only costs $269 or so~~~nuff said!
Problem is that fuji doesnt fit in your pocket like the pocketcams do.
Do you have any video samples of the fuji?

I recently purchased a HD100r from my local wal-mart and here is sample footage at 1440 x 1920.

Here is my ebay auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/Sanyo-VPC-HD100-...QQcmdZViewItem

It includes a data table copied from the HD100 user manual.

A HIGH QUALITY DIGITAL STILL CAM WITH HD SHOOTING CAPABILITIES, SUCH AS THE KODAK V1073.
I use Canon HF100s now (at 24p), I still have the amazing HV20s kicking around on the shelf

I supplement the HF100s with footage from a V1073 and a Kodak Z1012. You can see footage from the V1073 right at the very start of this video (in the panorama), and whenever the sound goes down to mono during the clips (the Z1012 footage is stereo)

These two Kodaks are superb low-light cameras. Fully automatic is quite handy for a point and shoot. I prefer the HF100, of course

I don't get it, why are you listing it on eBay for $300 when you can purchase them new at Walmart for under $200?

Fuji's S2000Hd produces stunning video and B&H sells them for $259......here's a sample clip someone posted at Vimeo: and if you're a Vimeo member (free EZ signup) you ca download the raw video!
At 10.6mbps none of these pocketcams are close (I have some)- this Fuji is the best and is not big at all- it's medium sized.

Just a great find and I'd like to pass the info onto you you guys.
If you're still stuck on one of these "pocket-cams" then~ have fun- but the poor video is just too limiting!
If I'm gonna shoot HD- I want sharp well exposed video- the Fuji does that at under $300!

Er, the Kodak V1073 was selling at $75 after rebate at Office Depot, and still is priced at $99. I bought one for my daughter at $75. The Z1012 IS is under $230. Both cameras use Optical image stabilization for video. The Fuji only does EIS in movie mode, which is nowhere near as good as OIS.

Does the Kodak V1073 feature stereo audio recording?

I was searching the specifications page...

Just read the manual.

The audio on the Fuji model is crappy... 11.025 Khz @ 8-bit... just awful; you'd have to supplement this with an external recorder... such as a Sony MiniDisc recorder to get decent sound.
