Exclamation Cheap Camera

Does anyone know of a hard drive camcorder for filming snowboarding for under $500?

you could also take a look at SD/SDHC memory card camcorders

B&H Photo Video has a pretty good selection at decent prices they have a website

you know those cameras, that have like the spherical lenses. ive seen snowboarding and skating videos that use them. it makes the video look larger in the center. those kinda cameras, how much do they cost?

thats a special lense called a fish eye ... I am pretty sure you need a SLR camera and the special lense all that equals ALOT of money!

You would need a digital SLR. You can find some decent ones around $500. A good one will run you $1000. Plus it's probably going to be around $300-$500 for the fish-eye lense. You can get some neat shots though.
One of my favorite pics from last year was taken with a fish-eye.

hikeforturns gets some fantastic shots with that camera. I am thinking of trying to get a digi SLR this season.

i wasnt expecting it to come near $1000. but thanks for the
info guys.

You could just buy like a 2005 Sony Cybershot (5 megapixels) for a lot less. They store pics and videos on a Memory Stick or Memory Stick Duo which you can stick in to almost any recently made computers.
