I once had a keychain video camera. It only cost $10.00 but the SIM card not included. That camera was destroyed from an on the pad engine CATO. I ended up buying the Estes video camera back when they had a 50% off special. It now sells for around $50.00. The quality of the video and audio are very good.

I highly recommend the Estes astrocam. I got mine for $35 on Amazon and you can get it for about the same price at AC Supply. Great video and sound quality and super easy to use. Only weighs 12 grams too.

The Estes camera can be a bit grainy and is not the most beautiful picture quality ever, but for the convenience, yah, it's hard to beat.

I have been using GoPro's for the higher end stuff.  They just announced a new model (the Hero 12) so you can usually get the older ones for much less. And I have also had really good luck with  with the  RunCam s. :I have a RunCam 2 and its great. You can usually get them for around $80.
