Default snowboarding camera

my friends and i looking for an inexpensive camera to shoot videos of us at the park, and maybe put them on youtube and myspace. i want something that is durable, good quality, easy to edit on the computer, compatible with different lenses, and not too bulky. im looking to spend 200-300$, and was looking at samsung sc-Hmx10. do you think this is a good choice? thanks

Before you look at the specs/functions of the camera, you want to make sure this is an outdoor style weather proof camera. you want a lens that is use to climate changes. When you pull a camera from your warm pocket or book bag, the lens will fog immediately. so you will want to buy anti-fog solvent and cloths also.

I just looked this up for you on Google for you, browse through them.

waterproof video camera - Google Product Search

When it comes down to it, you want something inexpensive and very light weight with fire-wire transfer for the best uploading quality. Pretty much everything you pick up today will shoot quality video. If it has 3CCD technology, you will be very good to go.

thanks for the reply, but all the waterproof cameras dont look like you can different lenses for them, because they are all square. can you get different lenses for these cameras? thanks

no sir not for those. if you want to be able to change lens, you will have to start looking into mini DV cams. are you looking to utilize UV lens to protect against glare?

Those were just examples from a quick search on Google. if you look on there you will be able to find 35mm lens etc style cameras however the waterproof versions will go up in price.

I'm not a camera Guru, I just know the basics and I use cameras when racing my car's mounted to the outside, so i don't put much money into them.

Its seems that no one makes a good weather proof camera... best bet would be to buy a decent normal camera and carry a weather proof camera bag. Just be sure not to drop the camera. If you do, make sure you have a brush handy to clean all of the snow away before it gets inside the camera

this camera:JVC GR D850 Camcorder - 680 KP - 35 x optical zoom

is good and you can buy the lens separate to match the housing. Ebay has the universal lens kits for pretty cheap.
