This forum has answered that one some thousand times to date. The answer is still the same.
As to sound, only a few hundred times but in short you want external microphones for quality or else you live with what you get.
Those flip cams are quite cool and nice things. Go try one.
Can 1 of u experts recommend the smallest video camera that shoots good video & sound in dark areas? I've heard of digital cameras that also have video options but not sure how the quality is on those. I've also seen alot of those spy type cameras, but again not sure of the quality of those either. What about those flip cameras they're cheap(Under $200) but look like something you'd buy for your teen or YouTube videos.. Any sugestions??
