Boy, if you’ve been waiting for hi-def camcorders to get affordable, your wait is over. Amazon is offering this cute little number for $299, which is just about half off the list price of $595. Somehow I doubt you’re getting the quality of a RED or HV20 here, but at three bills anything is a steal. It does 720p and 7-megapixel stills, recording to SD cards. It’s got HDMI out, a 2.7-inch LCD screen, and 5x optical zoom. Sounds like a steal to me, get on that!
