This apparently didn't make it to the list on the first try; apologies 
if it shows up twice.

OK, this is a bit OT but there's a lot of video expertise here so I
figured I'd ask.

I'm looking for an inexpensive, handheld digital camcorder, something I
can give to a child to make movies with.  My kids are pretty good about
not breaking stuff, but still, I don't want them playing with my $600

No tapes, no moving parts, and ideally records AVIs to an SD card, small
enough for a child to handle easily.  Of course it must record to a
non-proprietary format.

Any suggestions?

Linux stuff has made big progress over the competition. When things sit 
and don't start right away, we have a watch, and those poor guys have to 
settle for an hourglass.
