Full HD small size camcorders can be found on the market from $700-800 USD. Some real miniatures, some slightly larger.
Some manufacturers are :
- Sanyo
- Sony
- Pansonic
- Samsung (larger and heavier)
The price by the end of 2009 will likely be less then $500.
How usefull are these small cameras to a traveller or a sportsman like a mountain climber?
- Very usefull, aside from the video store in memory SD cards, there is a much bigger capability to store pics of 8-9 Mpix.
Besides the is the optical (10X) and the digital (up to 100X) zoom.
I remember the time I had a Lowepro bag with place for a complete SLR and 2 more optics, and I had to carry a that huge bag with me just in order to catch some decent photos. This not to mention the problem of taking that bag into planes, cars and other places.
This tiny full hd cameras, can easily be carried on one's belt, making life easier and travelling faster, acording to the principle "go light, go fast".
