Re: Cheap Backup Camera ?

I've got a Olympus LS10 recorder. I figure I'll eventually need a couple more.

Nice camera but I'm not sure I want to budget that much for backups if I don't have to. I see there's lots of HD cameras on the market now that retail for around $200 - $300 each.

Here's my feature list...

- USB plug on camera (not on a crappy dock station like my current camera)
- shoots in full 1080p @ 30fps and 720p @ 60fps
- wide angle lens (so I don't have to backup 20 feet to get a picture like with my handycam).
- Mic plugin on camera
- Tripod screw on bottom (I'm sure most have this).
- And preferably it would have a hot shoe mount but not absolutely necessary.

I think if I end up spending around $500 / ea. I'll just get SLR cameras for stationary video backups.

I had budgeted around $200 for each backup. And I'll probably get 2 making a total of three backups and an SLR for primary.
