help with picking a digital camcorder

I am interested in buying a camcorder. I have heard of the flip which is nice and compact, which is what I want, something compact. Now I was hoping you might have some suggestions. I am looking for something that obviously also has sound. I want something that has a zoom, hopefully optical. Anti shake would be nice. I would like where it has a memory card, but can also be viewed on my computer and if it can also be viewed on my TV would be great. I want something with a good resolution and if like cameras good megapixels. I want it where the memory card types do not cost an arm and a leg since I would be keeping all my movies on the cards. I would be taking a lot of sports events since my daughter plays outdoor sports as well as indoor basketball. Any help or suggestions would be grealy appreciated. I am not worried about taking still since I always carry a camera with me to the games. I am trying to keep the price around a couple of hundred dollars or less.
