Help me buy a camcorder within the $250-$325 range.

A camcorder with:

A viewfinder is a great plus

flash or hard disk or hybrid

Mic input

manual settings for stuff like white balance, focus(TTL), depth of field, fstop, zoom speed, and etc..

zoom mic is a plus.

Basically im a college student who's interested in making short films(not professional of course). Basic videos to show off places, and take quality pictures.

This is my first time buying a camcorder aside from my crappy aiptek model. So what camcorder is good for me?

Im thinking about getting the Canon FS200 camcorder. It has no viewfinder but it uses flash memory(lots of space, easy editing). What do you think?
