Ski Video Recorder....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about buying a Kodak MC3 thing-a-maging for taking some ski video and pics. It's small and cheap. Anyone have any experiences? It has video, pic mode and mp3 mode.http://www.overstock.com/cgi-bin/d2....PROD_ID=54618#

Well...sorta cheap...

Get ready to buy a pile of memory cards if you really want to take video of anything while skiing.

You can get 4 minutes of high res and 20 minutes of low res video on the 64 meg. card. That's not to bad- then you can upload to the computer to free space. I mean, not bad for clips anyway. Defiantly somthing to think about. To bad 256 meg cards were not standard and cheap.

I've got that one. It barely works indoors unless its very bright and the lighting is from flourescent lights - then its just a bit yellow. Outdoors its fine in sun and overcast, though I haven't tried it on snow.

Heres a video (900kb-ish) of me whiping out at the local trampoline club. Flourescent lighting indoors, so its a bit yellowish. Right click on it, choose save-as, and watch if off your hard drive.


Outdoors the colour is fine. Photos are only 640x480 and blurry if you print them out full-page.

My 64 meg card holds about 5 minutes of video, or 10 if you don't mind a lower framerate (15, the video above is 30). You can preview and delete videos on the fly, so its not too bad if you are only recording 10-60 second bits at a time. No flash, no zoom. Very easy to use.

If you are on a budget, go for it. Most other digital cameras don't record sound and are limited to 30 second clips. Digital video cameras cost a lot more.
