I need some advice on which camcorder to buy!!

I am looking to purchase a camcorder to use for my martial arts class, it will be used for private lessons only and ideally the client will be able to take the disc with them when they have finished training, I dont think I will need to edit anything as I will just be shooting what the client wants me do shoot and not the whole lesson (under an hour) I dont know how long I can shoot with a mini disc (as i think this is the one that you will recomend) I have another camcorder that i bought a couple of years ago and i can do editing with that but i wanted something quick and easy and there for the client straight away to take away. I dont need anything fancy (i dont think) I can keep it plugged in so battery life is not important, wide angle could be good but again not important as the room we will be shooting in is quite big, quality of mic again is not that important, remote control could be useful!

I have had a look on amazon and there are so many different types..i just dont want to buy a dead duck!! I am looking to pay upto
