Which Camcorder?

Looking to buy a camcorder for taking music videos of myself singing/playing acoustic guitar for Youtube upload.  In the $200-350 range.  I haven’t had much luck  finding something with better  audio quality that works well in low light conditions.  I was told that flash memory format is the best option but what about other formats that might have better audio quality and lowlight performance?  The criteria I’m most interested in are 1. Ease of upload to Youtube/internet; 2. Better sound quality; 3. Image quality/good low light performance; 4. Ease of use;  5. Has image stabilization; 6. Prefer Mac/PC compatible; 7. Longer battery life.

Would greatly appreciate any feedback or suggestions.  Thanks for you help.  Please respond to me at [email protected]

If I had to get another one (I have a DV camera, which suits me fine). I would make sure 100% that the camera you get will work with the software you have. (if you are on a mac that is great, you'll probably already have a version of imovie). If you are on a pc I'd recommend buying a video editor.

Go HD for sure. I'd get a flip mino HD ($199 4GB, 1280x720) or a smaller type device like an ipod nano (only 640x480 30fps, no still images, but also only $150)

I very much recommend a Flip UltraHD. They're fantastic, about $200, very portable, and they record in High Definition, AND automatically upload to Youtube.
