Posted:There's a whole slew of small (pocket sized) HD cameras for $300 USD or under that have produced decent video of my flowlights. The one I've been using is a Kodak Vi6, but several brands use basically the same chipset (and newer versions thereof). They don't give you a lot of control if you're trying to do something a little more involved, but if you're just trying to get decent YouTube footage, they get the job done.
Posted:Sony has similar cameras, and Kodak also has newer models than what I'm using. I'll ask my friend who works for Vholdr (helmet cam company); they have a few dozen samples of their closest competitors' cameras, so I can probably get a couple other brands (and maybe some chipset info).

Posted:I'm looking for a video camera.
I heard that for recording fire and glow, the main thing you need is night settings.
EDIT! I read a tutorial on recording glowstringing from GlowSticking.Com that the main things that help recording spinning with glow are being able to control focus/toggling autofocus and and a good nightshot or other lowlight setting.
Is that still how it's done, and is the same, something similar or what else is used to record fire? EDITED_BY: Tide (1273317372)
