The Handycam SR68 hits the $350 price point in Sony's standard def
lineup for 2010. The features and video quality are identical to all the
other S-series Handycam models, but this guy includes a respectable 80GB hard drive (compare to the SX44's 4GB flash memory for $269 and the SR88's 120GB hard drive for $399). It's a comfortable amount of space, especially for standard-def video, and at a reasonable price too. If you're just doing casual shooting on a budget of a few hundred dollars, this should do fine.
