Companion Camera for a D90?

This may be the wrong sub-forum, but I'm posting here as fellow D90 users with experience can likely be more helpful to my cause then general advice aloof of HDSLR usage.

So here goes,

I can't wait to get my hands on a D90 (720p 24fps, I've played with one a bit) for my next movie, however there are limitations with this camera and I'm looking at maybe getting a companion camera. I'm using this lens because I have a good collection of Pro Nikon glass at my disposal.

Current I have a Flip Ultra HD (720p @ 30fps) which has its uses but doesn't have a zoom or any other regular camcorder function so it becomes a crash-cam where I want action really close to the camera where it my get damaged. So I'm looking at getting another companion camera, at least 720P. It needs to be inexpensive in comparison to the D90 which will take the lion share of video, this camera would be for slow-mo and fast pan shots mainly. Initially I was looking at the Sanyo Xacti TH1 for $179 (720p 30fps, 30x zoom) but it may be underpowered for what I need.

What are people's experience / suggestions?
