Samsung VP-MX20

 

Affordable standard-def camcorder optimised for YouTube uploads and video blogging.

H.264 AVC recording, fun Interval/time-lapse mode, pretty cheap (for a camcorder)

No still images mode, sub-par image quality, pretty expensive (for a Net-cam)

Despite its prominent YouTube branding, the VP-MX20 is not really a Net-cam; at least, not in the traditional sense. Nevertheless, it should prove adequate for casual users who require a cheap point-and-shoot camera.
