Don't take too much offense from everybody, but your post was pretty much ridiculous lol.
Windows movie maker will be your friend here, as buying a $250 camera and then getting final cut pro or something is just impractical.
As for the camera, 200-300 doesn't give you a lot of cameras to work with, you'll probably just want the standard still camera video camera combo that you can get from future shop. That is, unless you can find a video-specific camera for around that much.
Zoom you won't need to worry about, as I doubt you'll be setting up a tripod every time you take a shot, as you're not getting too serious from what I undestand.
Other than that, my best advice is learn to use your settings, as that will improve the quality of your shots ALOT, even with a not-so-great camera. Learn how to adjust your white balance, brightness levels, and exposure times. This will let you take better shots with your camera, therefore making better edits.
And learn how to use windows movie maker, as it is the best thing you can have for that much money.
"Firstly Pollard has a fierce rock wall of defense on newschoolers. People are immediately trashed for ever cursing his name. Tanner too has a loyal following, but in his course as the master of mordor, many have come to see fault in his ways.
Only Simon Aragont, with the help of the white wizard Eric Gandard, and potential allies TJ Shimli and Jon Legolosson, could ever defeat his mighty power. But wary they must be, for the C-orcs have been known to lurk around the base of the marijuana volcano!"
