Default Help please! Should I buy the Sanyo Xacti CG10 or the Sony Webbie MHS-CM1 HD

Camcorder? Both are within my price range (under $200).

Or do you have any other suggestions? I don't like the FLIP Camera ... I've read all about it. I just don't like the cellphone like shape of it. I much prefer the traditional shape of the Webbie (rectangular with a wrist strap).

Things I need in a camcorder:
- image stabilization
- HD
- flash or hard drive
- bonus points for mic jack
- still shot option (bonus points if they are actually good)

Thanks so much for your help. I love this forum <3

I would have suggested the Kodak Zi8 but you won't like the shape of that either I suppose. At that price point, the IS is probably going to be very poor. That is usually one of the first things manufacturers cut from the lower models. Often it is digital only.

Hi, Thanks for answering my question. I actually decided to go with the Samsung HMX H100 HD Camcorder. I did hear that the Kodak Zi8 is the best FLIP-like camcorder, though. I would have bought that if I liked the small size/limited features. Thanks again!
