What are some good tips for a beginner camcorder user?

A few weeks ago, I bought my first ever camcorder/ video camera. Today, I actually got round to opening the box for the first time and found I needed a memory card of a type I don't have at the moment. I have now ordered one. I have never used a camcorder and am a bit of a technophobe in many ways. What are some good tips and what is some good advice for a complete novice learning from scratch to record quality videos for publishing online?
