Ok so I'm looking to get a video camera. I don't really care about HD (high def), but I do seem to want a HDD (Hard Drive) based device, as I really don't like the idea of changing miniDV disks or similar media along the way, let alone encoding or conversion of the end result anyways. Obviously, I'd also want to be able to acquire an external lens/helmet cam for it, so that I can fully capture and later implicate myself in all sorts of hands-free illicit activities.
But the search based on this criteria is proving difficult, and all I get from the big box store staff are blinking eyes and blank stares.
So who's got a setup they're happy with? Links to the hardware involved is much appreciated.
