Question by shouldaleana: I want to buy a videocamera for videos to be posted on YouTube. What should I get and how much should I pay?
A couple of my friends and I took a video production course together where we made funny videos a couple years back. I thought it would be cool if we made some new videos and posted them on YouTube (www.youtube.com). I am not looking to purchase a top of the line recording device, just something that we can film and edit videos with. What recording device (video camera?) should I purchase and how much should I expect to pay?

Video on youtoube and the like does not need to be high quality any cheap camera would do. The most frugal approach would be to hit up a pawn shop or resale shop and find an old hi 8, VHS, or SVHS camera, purchase an analog capture card use some editing software found on the net and go to town.
