You should get a Sony TRV 900. Here's a link to one on Ebay that's going for under $300.

The TRV isn't a High Definition camera but it is a great first camera to learn on, I wish I would have started with this camera. The key to shooting great looking footage with any camera is in setting it up manually. Most if not all the time, simply setting your camera to auto will look like shit. The TRV 900 has full manual settings, so you can learn about setting your white balance, shutter speed, and aperture manually. Plus you can get the opteka baby death .3x depth fisheye which is the best fisheye you can get for a small camera. Here is some footage shot with that setup (The TRV 900 and Opteka baby death lens)

Just note that whoever shot this stuff obviously didnt white balance correctly on a ton of the clips so the footage is overly golden looking.

Hope this helps you dude!
