Default best SD camcorder for youtube upload

hi to all !!

i'm searching in google a lot of reviews for found what is the best price/value camcorder with SD and a simply youtube upload function.

OK, I de-refine my needs to be more simple for yours to suggest someone.

so, the points interesed are this:
one buttom upload to youtube
light lamp!
best video quality for internet (youtube, facebook, etc)
not flip style!!!

Extra points if have:
pre-recordig function
if is 60p or 240p or someone
external mic input

what i don't want or care:
extra memory slot/media
HD resolution recording
extra features for movie, etc
big optical zoom (more than 3x is ok)
manual functions
if isn't new model
fly


so, at this moment have someones in my mind but are so quickly to take a decission, jvc, panasonic and samsung have good features but are a lot of models

anyone have ideas, experience or know models than can be considered for a more detailed review of my?


thanks in advance!

Wow I'm not sure a camcorder with all those features exist. Maybe take a look at this one. http://www.aiptek.com/Camcorders/HD/H12/features/

I've purchased Aiptek before and it does a good job. You might as well buy HD that's where everything is going these days, looks better, and once you get used to it, you can't go back.

the most important things are in bold, so if someone have another recommendation, can be based on the bold text.

so I will review the aiptek, but i think, for better as can be, it will never be better than panasonic, sony or jvc in this type...

so another suggestion ?

thanks

Good luck.

Kodak zi8. I care not about how many steps it takes to load a vid, its only one step difference.

1 you cannot just tap a Icon on your desktop and watch it load. the cam would need to be bluetooth or eyefye,. the next cam will be the Kodak Playtouch, has a share button.

Sanyo pistol grips, Aiptek HDMI camcorder but no share button.

the choice is up to you.

ok ok, you have the reason, but when i mention 1 button youtube upload, i was try to mean than i don't wanna HD video to have waiting a lot of time to upload, the most big resolution I need is WVGA 16:9 not more, so if the camcorder brand comes with a software of changing the format video to this resolution and upload to youtube, it will be very nice.


so i'm founding at this point jvc and panasonic, what of they are better? canon have a mic input but not have software to upload to youtube very easy.

what about sony? and the sanyo pistols have a software for upload video to youtube? thanks

I'd listen to our resident guru (and other things) FishComics -
both his top recommendations of the Kodak Zi8 or Zx3
are capable of recording at WVGA (it's one of the settings)
but can also record all the way up to 1080p/30fps -
so for the videos you just want to upload to YouTube record at WVGA -
for those you wish to keep record at 1080p or 720p/30fps or 720p/60p...
