im in the same boat, man. im looking at the gopro hd hero, kodak playsport (waterproof!) and the canon PowerShot SX20 IS (hd recording is on the list). i will probably go with a canon eos if i can muster together another 200 bucks, but so far the powershot is the best contender. i will definitely get it if i can manually focus the lens. i dont know if it does that, yet...

I'd second one of SPAZ's suggestions - the GoPro HD Hero. I've been looking at a few clips shot with it recently and the quality seems good for such a small camera. And at that size, it's really handy for taking on the hill, you don't need to worry about taking a back pack or anything like that. And there's always the option of the helmet attachment if you fancy some helmet-cam footage...
