My sons are mad on skateboarding and are always uploading vids to you tube.

However after 2 ipod screen repairs i've had enough and am going to buy my youngest an HD camcorder, but it needs to be able to be used with a fisheye lens.

Im looking to spend less than £200 

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Have a look at the Go Pro range. Friends use theirs for mountain biking and skiing and I've used one for scuba diving - comes with lots of mounts and the picture quality of the Hero 3 is excellent !

oh and the Hero 3 range is smaller and lighter than the 2 and comes with an ultra wide lens..

Thanks Rob im also into mounting biking and some on the ride use the hero,my boys want a small cam with flip out screen so they can edit on the fly.

I think the screen for the hero is an expensive extra that takes it over budget.
