I don't know where to post this so if it should be moved, I apologize in advance.

I am trying to buy a digital video recording device of some kind for a few things. The main one would be for interviews. I am hoping I can get something good enough where it could be used to make "budget" music videos. Basically, a video for youtube that is edited, like a music video, but the quality doesn't have to be anywhere near a professional video that would be used on TV. This would be an example of the quality I am hoping for:

My budget is not good. I hoping under $300, really hoping for like $100. I have no experience with new cameras in general, much less something for video. There are so many great photographers on this board, I am hoping someone can point me to something I can enjoy.
