Lightbulb Video Recording Camera, Which one?

Since the amount of knowledge on this site is amazing, I figured this would be a good place to ask this question.

I am looking for a video camera that I can use in a classroom setting to record a presentation by a student, and then remove whatever storage medium it uses and go into another classroom to review it with the student on a computer, if possible.

We have used a camera that records on a mini DVD disc, but we have to wait almost 10 minutes for it to finalize the disc before we can view it. This delays the next presentation.

Is there a camera out there that uses a storage medium we can take out of the camera and plug into a computer to view with out having to wait for it to finalize? Wed like to use something that we can give to the student when the class is over so they can review their presentations at home.

Re: Video Recording Camera, Which one?

Almost all cameras today as using "SD Cards". Once you record, you can remove the SD card and put it in an SD card to USB port Reader and watch the video immediately. My cheesy Kodak C643 does this at fairly high quality, all thing's being relative. And all for about $120 total, including the card reader.

The sky is the limit on camera costs. All depends on how high of quality you need out of the video. I'm guessing 640x480 is good enough for this application.

Bob Like Joe said most use a SD card that can be removed then viewed from a card reader. I use a JVC Everio model #GZ-MS100U that works great. My wife shoot this video on the fly up in Utah last CCR
