For a budding videographer this is the perfect camera. It features enough manual controls that you can make your videos truly shine. While this is not a recent camera and thus only shoots in SD it's still not a bad proposition if you can find one used. It does have a firewire port so you can export all your clips for editing using any of your preferred video editors.
Its a small and compact camera and while not rugged it can take a few tumbles in an improperly padded bag(not advocating you do this of course!). The conveniently placed handle on the top gives you access to a secondary set of controls so getting those peculiar shots is never an issue.
Again it may not be the newest camera out there but if you can find one cheap on Ebay it makes a great introductory camera for budding videographers especially those into skateboarding or other sports as a variety of 3rd party fish eye lenses are available for this camera.
