I'm new, both to this site and video recording. I have a question, it's almost certainly been asked before.
Which is the best Camcorder? Simple, well not really. I am looking for something that will fullfill specific reqirements.
1. It must be small
2. It must be light
3. It must have the capability to attach a helmet mounted camera (can you see where this is going?)
4. It must be capable of recording in high quality
5. It must have good battery life.
I've been looking at the Canon HV20 and the reviews look quite good, and it appears to be quite light at only 535g.
If you hadn't already guessed, I'm looking at shooting some extreme sports. I take part in quite a few of the things, mountain biking, mountaineering, rock climbing etc. I need something that is going to be light enough so that it won't add too much to the weight I already have to carry and it must have AV in so that I can attach a Helmet Cam. The latter is essential as all of the sports involve using both hands .
On the subject of helmet cams, can anyone reccomend one.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
