I've been asked my a friend for advice about buying a low cost camcorder for recording a 9 day sailing trip.
As my photographic knowledge is sketchy at best and my knowledge of camcorders even less, I thought I'd ask here for some pointers.
Requirements are that it's HD and waterproof. Doesn't have to be able to stand up to a scuba dive but if it should survive being dropped in the water without needing immediate remedial surgery.
The only other requirement is low cost. A budget wasn't mentioned but I'd say around $350 maximum.
I've looked at eBay cheapies and Sanyo Xacti so far.
I've just been reminded of one other requirement - it should be pink, but I think we can ignore that one Teenagers!
