WTB: Digital Video Camcorder

I'm looking for a gently used digital video camera. I've never owned one before and would like something on the inexpensive side, with a decent battery life, relatively small, optical zoom, adequate resolution for viewing and publishing, that can be used for tank mounted rides, family get-togethers, etc.

Something comparable to this Canon FS100 would be ideal.

Canon or Sony preferred but other brands considered.

If you have something laying around that could use a new home, please let me know. i'd like to keep it under $200 if possible. Thanks!

Just a curiosity question for the masses: Are miniDV Camcorders becoming a thing of the past? Is tape on its way out? Am I better off to get something that shoots straight to an SD card? I'm not sure how the viedo qualitu comapres between the two medias but it seems like less moving parts is desirable, particularly if I'm shooting anything on the bike. Thoughts?
