Any suggestions on a good camcorder?

So I make a good bit of YouTube Videos. I do mainly stationary reviews, (indoor, lighting, backdrop etc). And I use to use my Kx as my main recording device. The lighting I have isnt terribly good, (cheap umbrella kit from amazon) So I usually slap on a f2.8 lens and it turns out rather well.

wellllllllllll, I just sold my Kx, so no more using it for recording. I do still have my K7, but I would rather keep that for use IN the videos rather than recording them.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for a good camcorder for recording such things? I dont want to spend a ton, only because this is its primary purpose. I will probably never use it anywhere other than recording reviews, yet I want them to look semi-professional. I had thought about getting a nice FLIP camera, but not sure if its going to do what I need it to. Looking at it, it looks like it cant be great quality, but they are getting awesome reviews.

Anyone have any advice on this? Any other suggestions?

I like my Panasonic TM700 with 3MOS sensor and F1.5 Leica zoom in 1080p60 mode.

Looks like a great rig, but at $850 its way out of my price range. As I said, I only plan to use this during video reviews, so I was hoping between $100 and $300 max....
