    When recording video with a flash memory recorder, do they take a few
    seconds to compress/save the video when you pause, like digital cameras?

    I'm looking for camcorders that can records for a few seconds, then
    instantly be available for playback. This would be useful for sports
    lessons, where the instructor can hold the camcorder while I practice a
    move, then when I finish, show me what I did right/wrong.

  2. I'm not sure why a delay of one or two seconds would be a problem in
    your case...

    The delay involved in the instructor's pressing the stop button,
    turning the camera towards you, then pressing the play button, would be
    bigger than any internal delays.

    Look at the Panasonic HDC-SD9. Not only will it do
    what you want, but you can also do a multi-image strobe,
    that is great for analyzing golf swings, etc.
