Recommend a camcorder please

Struggling to pick out a camcorder, needs to be flash based using sd cards. Something with 720p would be great too, just not 30fps would like 60fps. So long as it can handle fast moving images without jerking.
With a budget of £200 max, what you recommend?

You'll not get jerky images just because you're at 30fps. 30fps only feels jerky in video games because there's no natural motion blur in them. In real life, the 25fps of normal TV looks smooth enough to please the eye, although it has to be said that 60fps does add a very pleasant fluidity to video.

Anyhow, I've got a Sanyo Xacti CG10, and here's a quick demo of the footage that it shoots: youtube.com/wat…Oj8
