i had one and it only has 5 mp camera...
so i sold it and got...
toshiba h30 camileo 159.99
that's a steal for how amazing this camera and camcorder actually are.
Flip HD is definitely in the budget, and I'm pretty impressed with the quality (for the price). In terms of making a quality music video on a 500 dollar budget (Maybe invest in an SLR that shoots video it'll cost you a few hundred more, but it's definitely worth it in the long run since you can change lenses ect.), you're going to have to work extra hard on making your own lighting setups ect. Best of luck!

I deff recommend the kodak zi8, its only draw back is it doesnt do well in low lighting...if you want to see a music video shot with the zi8 peep this
RED (freakin any of em), Canon 5D or 7D, or any cool DSLR with interchangable lenses. I mentioned RED. Not everyone can afford an Epic but many don't realize they can afford a Scarlet. All of RED's camera are modular, like DSLR's. Meaning you can add accessories as you go. Doesn't have to break the budget up front.
Bottom line though, there are many tricks in post you can leverage to make any HD camera look fine. I still shoot with an old FX1 much of the time, especially for live shoots. I add film looks and marquee effects in post and most think the thing was shot on film... or at least a higher end camera. As with any art, it aint the tools... it's what you do with them.
