    Osama, as much as I would like to tell you that there is a camcorder out there that has these features and is under $300, I can't. You see, I remember searching for a cam that was cheap and had similar specs, but it is truly difficult to find one. 

    As far as your price threshold goes, I have a very trustworthy link here that might help you out: http://bit.ly/r6Msww

    The link hooks you up with all of B&H Photo-Video's high-def cams that are under $300. As you can tell, the picking is pretty slim, but there is a wide selection of cams that are a little higher than your price range. However, if you do some searching using the link I gave you, you will find some nice cams. There were a few JVC ones that I fancied.

    B&H is what I would consider to be the top store in the USA. Also, if you want, you can check out their used store right here: http://bit.ly/ql2i3

    Are you a video production major or anything similar?
