    Default Best relatively inexpensive video camera that uploads "idiot proof" to YouTube?

    Before off-topic day goes away, can anyone help me in my quest? I am looking for something to document my young horse's progress and our lessons. I'd like something that an idiot (me or whomever I hand the camera to) can use, has image stabilization, and uploads to the web without a whole lot of trouble.

    Recommendations? My BFF has an iPhone, but it doesn't have the image stabilization.

    Sony Bloggie Sport. Exactly what you asked for.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have,
    at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    Most excellent. And at a buck-eighty, pretty affordable, too.

    The Panasonic video cameras are really good, small, and very easy. I bought the cheapest I could find, less than $200, and it's a semi HD camera with a great zoom lens.

    There's probably a newer, better model out now since mine is about two years (maybe three?) old, but i LOVE my kodak xi8 camera. Super easy to use. I was using a friend's Flip camera for recording her riding the other week and the flip didn't have nearly the zoom the kodak has, which is especially nice for taping jumping rounds and zooming to the far end of the arena.

    The Bloggie has the USB thingy that pops out build as part of it, and it has the software built in as well. It is pretty easy to load stuff, when you plug it into your laptopnit asks where you want the stuff to go to, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc.
