    Camcorder for Youtube Prank Videos

    Budget

    $100-$200. The cheaper the better of course

    Size

    I need it somewhat compact... easily concealable when walking around... so it can fit in a paper sack or under a sweatshirt, etc

    Features

    I don't care about photo image quality at all.

    General Usage

    I will be using it to make youtube prank videos, filming moving subjects outside. It should have decent zoom capabilities, be able to take HD 1080p video, and have capabilities for memory expansion via memory card. It also should have good battery life (2/3 hrs or more) for taping long sessions outside.

    im considering this Amazon.com: Panasonic V100K 42x Intelligent Zoom SD Camcorder (Black): Electronics

    There are many cameras that combine small size, high zoom and 1080p video with zooming ability. A few to consider are the Panasonic ZS25 (20x zoom), Samsung WB250F (18x zoom), Nikon Coolpix S6500 (12x zoom) and Sony WX 80 (8x zoom). While the Sony has the least amount of zoom, it's also the smallest, camera by far.

    My camera recommendations are not an endorsement of any particular use you intend to make of the camera you purchase.

    Have you considered a GoPro? I haven't used one but from what I've seen they're pretty small
