    Best for what? Home movies, music videos, skateboarding, broadcast TV, zero light, really loud or really low audio, professional, high altitude, documentary, standard definition or high definition, movie-like, slow motion...

    What is your budget? Entry level toys can be had for ~$80; high end professional rigs can be $80,000 or more.

    What will you edit the video with - computer? What editing application do you want to use?

    If you can provide some detail, a more appropriate level of help can be provided.

    We agree with Little Dog. It all depends on what you need to film and what format you need it to be in. Your budget will also be a major factor.

    Once you narrow down your most common filming situations or needs it will be easier to narrow down a good selection of choices from the hundreds currently available. Chances are that you will probably want a CMOS based camera system to help save time, money, and weight, but that still leaves several hundred different models that may or may not fit your particular situation.
