I have a budget of around $400.00 and need something that takes HD video
I would like something that either has an external mic jack or takes good audio, my subscribers complain of a high pitched whistle in my current videos (I cannot hear it)
It would also be nice if it could be set up to stream directly to a computer, as I would like to record classes, and some of them are 8-12 hours.
If the Contour +2 took still pictures I would compromise on the picture aspect because I shoot a lot of outdoor action stuff, and a waterproof helmet cam would be nice.
Right now I use a Nikon S8000, and liked it, but it just wasn't durable (plus the sound issues)
I know I am asking a lot, and will have to compromise something, but I cannot go over $400-$500 budget.
Please recommend something you think would work
