Sports camcorder
on Sep 30, 2007 at 6:19:15 pm

I am looking for the smallest sports camcorder for a project on Triathlons - needs to be attached in all 3 disciplines - swim, cycle & run.
Does anyone have any leads or experience with using this kind of thing - Is there such a thing that will record well enough to make broadcast work .

If you know exactly what you are going to do, what is the point of doing it? - Picasso

I don't have experience in those sports, but if you're looking for a body-mountable lipstick/POV camera, maybe something like this would be useful.

I'd try the little Canon HV20. Full HDV (and 24fps), only about the size of your fist, and unbelivably they are dirt cheap. I'm not sure about running (although you couple probably come up with something), but would be easy to attach to a bike, and for swimming you could use one of those quite-inexpensive ziplock-bag-type underwater housings.
