Why so angry...

The bullet cameras that have been explored in the past are generally considered sub-par to most handycams (sony camera) but from what I understand Sony has created a "bullet" style HD camera that looks promising and should be available in Febuary...

This thread is all about it...

Hi Teigen,

so I thought until starting to investigate, and am assured there are some good lenses with facility for attachments, and quality is dependent as with cameras on price. But I still haven't seen the evidence anywhere.

I have no experience with any bullet cams... I have an Sony HC5 (HDV) and might get a Sony CX12 (Memory Stick) camera in the spring.

I just thought I'd direct you to a thread that might apply... ;)

If you are a professional skydiver/coach and have a previous neck injury, a bullet cam is pretty much the only option for video (ask Plü from Paratec factory team).
The HXR-MC1 does look promising, but in my opinion, still too big to be called even "bullet style".
But if the "non detacheable cable" problem can be solved, that thingy might look good under next years xmas tree...
