The only good offerings to buy at the sub-$100 price point are the entry level pocket camcorders. Samsung is the a great brand to choose from at the 100$ price point - though it might be a great idea to also checkout Panasonic camcorders which offer some great alternatives, albeit typically at a slightly higher price point.
