I am 18 years of age, and I am looking into purchasing a video camera. Specifically, I need a camera that can mount onto a tripod, in order to take still shots.
Maximum price is 1000dollars.
Not sure why you're posting this question into a ski forum. unless you are looking for advice on an action-sports camera specifically skiing.
Why don't you stop by a camera store and talk to someone to understand what might be a good camera for you.
Of go to a camera-related forum/website:
Just about every camera mounts on a tripod.
