Default help with youtube camera purchase

I am thinking of getting my son the samsung sl30 because it seems to be feature rich with a small price tag (he lost his other more expensive camera so I am downgrading). It captures video in AVI (MJPEG). Can this be easily uploaded to youtube or should I really just limit my search to those that have AVI (H.264). If I worded this question incorrectly it's because I have no idea about this or youtube. Thanks in advance.

For YouTube, you can capture in virtually any widely used format as it will simply be converted anyway.

But does it take longer to upload if it is not compressed? He complained that his last camera took too long to upload to youtube. I would like to make it easier if I could....

Yes, uncompressed formats will bring larger files which would in turn take longer to upload.

Does any camera store video in uncompressed form? That would run
into gigabytes per minute!
