Instead of buying more wakeboard gear, for myself, this holiday season I though I'd dabble into video. I think my crew would benefit from being able to visually analyze our strengths and weaknesses.
I've done quite a bit of research and I think I have narrowed my choices down to the Panasonic GS-500 or the Sony HDR-SR1.
The GS500 seems to be a proven technology and will be good at capturing wakeboard footage. The SR1 seems to be the way of the future (HDD, HDV, etc...) , but I'm not sure it's superior to the GS500 for wakeboarding shots.
If anyone has any opinions on either of these camcorders I'd sure appreciate your input.
