Camcorder gift for snowboarder - need recommendation

by nerdherdbetty / December 9, 2008 7:13 AM PST

I'm looking for recommendations for camcorder to get my boyfriend for Christmas, preferably under $400. Definitely want flash, not hardrive and HD is definitely preferable as we have two HD flatscreen tv's. I know he would want to use it for snowboarding, so optical stability is important.

One that I was looking at is the Canon FS100, would this be good option or are there better options?

Also- any info about helmet mount would be helpful

Thank you!
