My child loves making movies with his green screen and special effects. He is using my digital cameras for his movies, but I thought perhaps a camcorder would be better for him. Any recommendations? I can't afford more than $400. Thanks

I dont know how old your kid is nor what his plans are as in making movies and such but... here is a good one because it's small, rugged, and its waterproof with the case. not very many bells and whistles, cant zoom, tho if you look at the go pro site there are some really cool things you can do with them like use 2 go pro cams for 3D and such...

I would suggest Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V. Yes it's a pocket cam, but it can make great videos.

Here's an example: http://vimeo(dot)com/25396445 Copy and paste this and put the "." back in.

Get him something in the canon Vixia line of HD Camcorders. You should be able to find one for around $400. I have the HF10 and HF30 and love them. Have a broken zoom on the HF10, but they changed that with the 30 and its much more durable. They take great video. You can see some of mine here - most taken under water with the Canon under water housing for the M30. http://www.youtube.com/user/maytrix007?feature=mhee

I like the Canon Vixia HF r20 - which is under $300, and gives you leftover $ for a good tripod or other such toys - see my video review on the product page here
