Best camcorders on a budget

I have a livestream show and when we're not streaming, we just tape it. I use a Sony NX5 camera to capture both hosts at the highest quality. The other two cameras are two cheap Sony digicams, PJ200 and PJ220.

I would very much like to change the two small cams to something much more robust. I mainly know the Sony camera library, and I was looking at some discount NX cameras or lately a Z5, but Z5 doesn't output 1920x1080, which I want.

Are there any cameras you can recommend? I'm looking for something in the 300-500$ range. Please do note that my price range is an eBay range, not retail price. For instance I do see quite a few Z5s going for 400 bucks these days.

I'm open to other brands.
