Video camera advice? Answered

So, I've been using my ancient camera to film craft videos for a while now, but I'm hoping to invest in something better - but I'm not sure what. I was hoping to invest in a DSLR that shoots video, but since my budget is pretty tight, I'm thinking of cutting my losses and getting a low-end camcorder. Does anyone have any advice for me in this regard? I'm hoping to get something in the region of $200 or less (student budgets are tough), but that films good quality video of relatively small things, such as small DIY projects. A local tech store has the Canon LEGRIA HF-R36 on special, so I was thinking of trying that, but I don't really want to rush into this.

Did you consider a second hand camera? I bought a second hand Sony Nex5 that works great for both video and photo.
