Camcorder needed to record kinetic artwork - suggestions?

I have been reading and reading and reading about camcorders for the past couple of days, and I'm still having trouble making heads or tails of what I should spend my money on.
The basics are that I need a camcorder to shoot video of the kinetic metal art that I build. I will be shooting indoors often, so lower light capability sounds like something I'd need. I also need to shoot close ups of certain items, say a zoom in on something that is about three to five inches across. I want to take these videos and transfer them to my computer, edit them, and then upload them to Youtube or some other such video sharing site. I am using a Macbook Pro, OS version 10.6.8 and I have an external hard drive. Oh, and I need to add that I have about $500 max to spend.
Thanks for any and all suggestions you my have for me. This stuff is really confusing, and I want to spend my money wisely. I was considering an HD camera, but there seem to be some many different opinions out there I'm not sure where to spend my money, though lots of people seem to suggest Sony and Canon. Thanks again.
