Fantastic GoPro Hero

Advantages: light, affordable, good quality
Disadvantages: haven't found any yet!

Ok, we've (my cricket club) not been using this long but I have to say we're rather impressed so far! Picked it up specifically to record bowling from the batsman's perspective with the camera worn over protective headgear. Camera is light enough to not ...

Great Starter from the Go Pro Range.

Advantages: Durable, cheap and good quality.

Semi-Pro XM2, excellence from Canon

Advantages: Lightweight, excellent picture quality, ease of use, hot-shoe for attachments
Disadvantages: Manual isn't so helpful. Not so good with low-light conditions.
