Default Digital Video Camera

Well our little girl is due any day. Want to get a digital video camera, but have been so busy with work, I haven't been able to do any research.
Anybody have a model they really like? Looking to spend a max of $500.00.

Thanks

Do a search on the internet. I just did and was surprised how the prices of those things have come down. Sony, Panasonic, and Canon all have cameras in your price range. If its like the older VHS camcorders Matsu- Sorry, I will learn to watch my language -a (sp?) Corp makes all the innards for them anyway.

What the heck? I tried to spell a Japanses company name and it defaulted to a curse word. The company is Matsush1ta (substitute an i for the 1).

I have a Sony about 4 or 5 years old. Model 360x. It has been a good camera and has given us no problems. Still on the original batteries it came with. [rechargeable nicads ofcourse] I gave it to the kids this year and they are hard on everything and it is still working well. I will say that it takes better outdoor video than indoor video pertaining to true colors.
