I need a good Sk8boarding camcorder Answered

I am in desperate need of a good skateboarding camcorder that i could also purchase a fish eye lens for. It would probably have to be under $300. I am currently looking at the mini dv cameras. But any advice or info would be appreciated.

I currently do a lot of taping for board video's. I would love one of those crazy expensive deals..... but I can't afford it. I do just fine with an oldschool 8mm tape camera....I've never seen one without the lens threads for fish eyes or anything else. if you go this route you could pick up a cam for like 100 bucks or less....... but you'll need a TV tuner card for your comp to put the video on it for editing. I also use a cheap digital camera/camcorder..... for different angles and its good for sneaking around places

best part about the cheap 8mm is that it takes good quality footage but its not rediculasly expensive. I don't worry about it at all. I pass it around at the skate shop and if were street skating I don't worry about rain or anything. I make sure the tape is safe and thats my only concern. there pretty durable too. I've dropped mine, I've had people land on it and me in a bad bail, its even been ran over by boarders a couple times...... think just keeps working.

I'm not much of a skater. I can keep my balance and go foward. I just tape..... and edit/produce a video in the end
