I've put off buying a camcorder because it's the kind of expensive gizmo I might use once then store in the back of the closet. And I'm hard on my gadgets, and a camcorder is a bit delicate for my rough ways.
But now I have a cheap (but good) DV camcorder on the way. It was on sale at buy.com for $200 after rebate. This will be perfect to mount on my bicycle to make travel logs of the city.
I use http://www.ourmedia.org/ to host my movies.
