B Roll Camera Recommendation

Hi everyone:

I was just looking to get some recommendations of a budget friendly B Roll camera to compliment
my NX5U. Some folks mentioned the GOPro3 and the Sony Cx260v. Or even the Sony HDR-PJ430,
But other than picture quality that's comparable with the NX5U, the only other attributes I'm looking for is
better stable-izing mode, shoots well in low light, and can use SDHC cards.

I've used the Kodak Zi8, before but the shots have been lot more choppier to correct in post, and
has some peculiar problems when incorporating to FC7 (even after formating to pro-res et all)

The B roll would be use for alternate visual for documentaries, run and gun shoots, or
as an emergency backup if something goes wrong with the NX5U performance. (I know but it saved
my bacon in planning for such contingency).
