Can anyone share advice on video camera choices - what specs I should be looking for, in terms of a camera to be used as a general use unit, but also for breaking down and analyzing sports activity, in particular pitching, hitting and some winter stuff. In particular, is there a frames-per-second number I should be looking for? Are there other specs I should bear in mind (resolution, zoom capacity, etc...) Since the camera will be used extensively in the field, it should be pretty durable too.

Some of the activity may be from futher away in potentially quesitonable light situations. I'm not afraid to spend a few dollars here, but if I do, I want to be damn sure I get a kick ass unit.

This is the specs that Right View Pro recommends for use with their system:


I imagine the specs would be the same with or without their software.

btw, their software ROCKS

It is very fun to play with.

Well thanks for the advice 2 weeks after I bought a unit!

I got a Panasonic HDC-SD1. Probably overkill, but I like it, especially the small form factor. The native recording format (AVCHD) isn't as supported yet as I'd like, but it will be soon enough.

The bad news is, of course, now that I'm handling video editing I'll need a new computer.
