Skip the second one, it's not capable of HD recording, it's max res is a grainy 720x576

The first one looks alright, probably work for a few months

The third one doesn't have enough specs

Alternatively, get a FlipHD second hand if you want something that'll last more than say 6 months, or a standard point and shoot camera with 720P recording?

Paid $99 for a brand new AV150 last Christmas, does 720P, there are bound to be ones that are around $50-60 on Trademe, plus if you are using paypal, expect to pay a few cents more in terms of transaction fees and currency charges:

So the $47.51USD would be close to $62NZD with current fees(old exchange rate, NZ to US conversion etc)

For more I guess try dealextreme and ebay?

All good :) let us know how you get on, since I'm looking for a cheap crashable one to go on my motorcycle, in case someone hits me off
