Default Best affordable Canon/Sony/Panasonic/JVC Camcorder for Skateboarding

It is about time that i update my camera setup, at the moment I am using an HD JVC Camcorder with a .43x Semi Fisheye Lens. I am upgrading my camera setup because the heads are now gone on my JVC and throughout my years with it I had nothing but problems with JVC. Personally i would not buy with them again but I suppose i am willing to give them another try if the camera is strongly recommended. I am looking for a good quality camera that is reliable and somewhat affordable. 300-500 dollars. A 37mm Thread size would be helpful and if it was available at Futureshop, The Source, or any of the popular electronic stores in Canada it would be extremely helpful. All answers are welcome. Thanks in advance.


-Brad
Some examples are :



SONY HANDYCAM® DCRSX45 SD
CANON VIXIA HF R200 FLASH

Something like that but it HAS TO HAVE THREADS! Thanks

It would cost in excess of $3500 to get a HD camcorder that could equal the video Quality of a $300 MiniDV tape camcorder.

Consumer level HD camcorders have 3 problems. 1) Blurry, fuzzy, out of focus areas closely around people in videos taken by consumer level HD camcorders. 2) Any movement, even a wave or lifting an arm, while in front of a recording consumer level HD camcorder, results in screen ghosts and artifacts being left on the video track, following the movement. Makes for bad video, sports videos are unwatchable. 3) Mandatory maximum record times - 1 hour, 30 minutes, 8 minutes, 3 minutes - all times advertised as maximum record time for some consumer level HD camcorders. No event i have aver been to is that short. Either take multiple camcorders or pack up with out getting the end of the event on video.

With a MiniDV tape camcorder, record 60 or 90 minutes ( camcorder settings), 90 second or less to change a tape and record for 60 or 90 more and repeat till you run out of tapes.

You can get a Canon ZR960 for $250. It is a MiniDV tape camcorder, has a Mic jack. You need a firewire (IEEE1394) card for the computer and a firewire cable to be able to transfer video to your computer
