Fujifilm FinePix AV200
14 megapixels: 3x optical zoom; 2.7” LCD monitor; 720p HD video; Captures to SD/SDHC media cards; AA batteries
The AV200 is a bare-bones budget model with a 14 megapixel sensor, standard 3x zoom, 2.7” LCD, and 720p HD video. It also runs on AA batteries; if that's your power source of choice, this is one of the dwindling number of cameras that could suit your tastes. At $89, it's the cheapest HD camera you'll find.
