alright let me refresh that:
i would like the best quality image i can get for under 250$. good for filming skiing and skateboarding. what is a brand i should look into or even better a model thati should check out 300$ at the highest please.
Well this past year I had a friend who used that new Flip HD camera and it worked great for skiing. I think that is the closest to your price range you're gunna get. First off it is HD, which is sick. But it is also super portable (fits in pocket) and u can directly plug it into ur computer without a cord. It is extremely underrated and a great camera.
Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.
A friend of mine has one of these, and it's not bad at all. It has a focus ring, which is a feature you won't find on many cameras in this price range. It may not be HD, but it will produce a better picture than a minoHD for sure Retailed for around 1400 when it first came out.
what camera do you have? i had a cheap enverio one from bestt buy 2 years ago, and it was a pain in the ass to edit. and the hd footy wasnt clear. so i sold it. but i bet the more professional you go the better the cameras get. but alot of people still dont like the jvc brand for video cameras
