Best Video Camera for Skydiving Can't Post

Hey,

Im well off from being able to use a camera, but im looking at buying a camera at the moment for general use and i would like to down the track get into camera flying, So just after your opinions on the best camera if money was not an issue for camera flying.

Everything i read seems to revolve around sony, which model would be best?



Thanks !

I Found a cheap HDR-CX150 cheap im thinking about purchasing that, it has Electronic stabilization

Would this be suitable for skydiving ?

Also would the follow lens be suitable?

GoPro Hero2

It's the best bang for your buck. The CX class cameras can have better images if you shell out a lot of money for a really nice lens, but for $300 you can't go wrong.

Not to mention it saves your neck over time.

If you can find a good used CX-100, depending on your mount and helmet setup, you'll like the better/easier access to the card. Smile
