I'm looking to buy a dedicated VIDEO camera to catch some snow footage now and then this season. I'm looking to stay around the affordable price range of $150-$250ish. I want it to be a reasonable sturdy size too to be able to chill in the coat pocket and able to survive a hit on the snow. I know everyone loves the GoPro but I really doubt I would ever do any helmet/pole cam action, I just want one to hold, but I sure do love the footage it puts out. Has anyone ever just held it to shoot footage and been extremely pleased? I love the fisheye type view too.
Edit: Spenser, you shoot some sexy footage, what are you using?
Sorry if there has been a thread like this before, I dunt search tew well.
