Hi guys,
Ive got a good camcorder at the moment, But I really wanted to get another one for back up.
Curious, I wanted to try a cheap one off of DealExtreme.
As I am not good at these things, I would like to compare these 2 camcorders.

Please do not tell me to buy off a different site, (I'm curious)
The things you need to assess:

Graphics,
Quality,
Looks,
Price.
Please also take a look at the comments section on the items page,

Any other comments regarding which would be better for filming would be great,
:D

I would definitely go with the first one out of those two, personally though I wouldnt buy either of them unless I was on a budget. The second one (white one) cant be very good with it only being $24.90 and I can imagine the quality being horrendous, very similar to an okay webcamera. I had a quick look at the site there, if I was going to get one from there and in their China camcorders section it would be either this one:

Or this one here:

No problem, do you have a budget in mind as there could be others you could have a look at?

Yes, I'd like to keep it under $50 as it's just for outdoor vlogging and i'm scared to bring out my usual camcorder. Are there any under 50 dollar ones on the site that are better quality than the one you said you would go for?
