Hi everyone! I'm studying abroad this fall in China and want to capture my experiences in both photos and videos. I want a video camera/digital camera that can fit in my pocket and is good quality. I hate carrying around extra bags and stuff so it's very important that it's thin and fits in my pocket. I have about $400-450 to spend. I need a camera and the largest amount of memory possible for this price. I was looking at cam recorders but I couldn't find any small enough that would fit inside my pocket without a huge bulge so I think what I need is a good digital camera that can record well and has a lot of space for videos.
When looking up digital cameras, I didn't find any with big hdd's like the cam recorders so I would have to use some kind of memory card? What are the biggest ones? From some internet searching it seems like 64gb is the largest. Also, how much space would a 10 minute HD video use on one of these cameras?
I have no clue what i'm looking for when it comes to a camera so I hope someone can help me. Thanks!
