Camcorder Vs Action Cam

Recommended Posts

Im sure this has been discussed but i cant find any current info through search or digging back a bit.

Ive been out of the field for awhile (2011) and was jumping a CX-100. Seems things have changed a lot since then. What are the opinions these days for a camcorder vs Action cam. Im specifically looking at the CX-675 VS the Sony FDR3000.

I know this questions varies alot on what type of flying you will be doing. Starting back out most of my jumps will be small belly formations (2 way/4 way type stuff), the occasional attempt at Free Flying work, but the ultimate goal is filming tandems again.

Lastly, thoughts on lenses for either. It looks like the action cameras dont need anything and the CX-675 maybe? I had a .3x on my CX100 and would should stills at 14-16mm and this seemed to pair up decent.
