I'm looking to buy a camera to film wakeboarding (no gopro). Something with a good quality and a big enough zoom to film at the cable.. My budget is 400-600 $ ... or a bit more if there's a real good opportunity.
Any idea ?

Thank you

I have been using a Canon HG10 I got for a steal on ebay $150. Does 1080p and records to a 60gb hard drive.

Check the frame rate. Get a good frame rate or your slowmo stuff will look like ****.

My canon T2i takes pretty awesome video. I usually shoot at 60fps and everything looks pretty good. You may be able to find one on ebay in your price range.

Canon DSLR's shoot amazing video. Keep in mind these aren't run and gun rigs. There is no autofocus so you will have to have a good eye and pull focus yourself. Another thing to consider is there isn't a traditional eye piece so you would want to buy a viewfinder add on for the lcd screen which will cost extra. If you don't mind buying used I would highly recommend the canon hv30 or hv40 series. They are tape based but still hd and most computers don't have any trouble handling the HDV codec.

Nikon P510. 42x optical zoom, largest zooms of super zoom cameras, to me it's pretty much a dslr without all the $$$ lenses. Does everything I need, and more. The zoom is unreal and usable at full zoom. Takes 1080p, 720p, etc.. video, and the quality of it is amazing.
