Sony's FS1 is as basic as a pocket camcorder gets these days. It's small, it shoots 1080p video, and it has digital image stabilization. The 2.7-inch widescreen LCD is generous, and the 4GB of built-in memory apparently holds 2 hours of video (which is interesting, because 4GB Flip models only record one hour). The design some of the personality of last year's Bloggie models, but this looks like a decent, budget-friendly pocket camcorder. We'd suggest shopping around a bit, though.
