Best portable mini camcorder?

We’re looking at getting one of the super small portable camcorders for some family – one of the ones like the Flip.

Ease of use is a must, along with portability.

Any recommendations or de-recommendations?

I love the Flip. Super easy to use, smaller than an iPhone and the movies look great. I think the only drawback is lack of image stabilization, but I’m not sure if anything else with the same image quality and size has IS at the price of the Flip. I’d pick up a Gorillapod to go with it.
