bambam, sorry bout that, im retarded at times. basically heres the market you guys are looking at, high level consumer 1 ccd, high level consumer 3 ccd (like that panasonic bambam mentioned) and prosumer 3 ccd, like the vx and gl series. now mine along with most action sports videographers opinion, is that if you are saving up the money to get a cam above a grand or so, save up and buy a prosumer 3 ccd new, or just buy a used one with whatever money you have. this is because if you get the consumer versions, you will realize they dont have the customizability and other options you will want, and you will out grow these consumer cameras quickly.
and if you dont like my opinion, the best ski movie ive seen so far, strike 3, was shot on prosumer 3ccds, primarily a vx2000
