Vid for the hill

So I am considering picking up a smaller videocam for recording friends and myself sucking it up on the hills just for fun. I was curious what do you guys bring to the slopes with you for recording?

Haha yeah I tried stealing something from my parents this weekend. Unfortunatly they only have one camera and did not seem to keen on letting me have it haha. I suppose paying a little more might be worth it for the smallness.

An option for you to look at as well is something called the "go pro". It's a camera alot of longboarders have been using for quite some time, and the quality is pretty rad. They go for about $160, depending on where you look.
