Oh and you probably won't want a MiniDV or hard drive memory camcorder for filming snowboarding, they're easily damaged. They both have moving parts so if you fall on it, you'd lose all your footy and have to pay for repairs. You'll probably want something that records to solid state memory.
HF200's are great if you want HD.
