The camera I use (and love) is the Kodak ZI8 which is similar to the Flip... just better. It doesn't have much for manual settings, but it does shoot in 1080p@30fps, 720p@30fps, and 720p@60fps! It runs off of an SD card, can be powered by an external AC adapter, has a tripod mounting hole, an HDMI output for your TV, can be controlled by an IR remote (sold separately), and most importantly, has an external mic jack. My only issues with it is that the viewing frame is a little narrow (which you can fix with a separate wide-angle lens), and that there is no way to use the HDMI port for an external monitor. I'm having a herd time finding a link at a decent price, but when I bought mine from Target last year, it was $80-90. Happy shooting!
