Pocket camcorder are more often than not the best camcorders to buy under $200. These are great for quick outdoor shooting and also a good option for kids to graduate from. Look for features like Still shot capability particularly in pocket camcorders to double them up as cameras and MPEG movie mode for painless online sharing of videos.

The best options at the sub-$200 price point are the pocketable offerings from Panasonic and the consumer grade options from Samsung.
