Do you mean me ?

if you check out page 2 of my training blog I started taking a Fuji A800 up with me, it's cheap enough to use for anything, small enough for flying suit pockets and i can operate it with gloves on. I think the pictures are ok, I have reduced them before sticking them up.

They are about £70 now but being a year or so old they may be end of line soon.

Just one tip, make sure you attach the carry strap to you, you WILL drop it at some point, same goes for anything in your pockets i.e. phone.

I use my left hand for the camera, not had any problems that way. You don't want anything too complicated as you need to be keeping an eye out on your flying all the time, this one you just turn on and press the button, if the lens is extended you know it's on, when you turn it off the lens retracts and a shutter closes over it.

i just bought an aiptek DV & camera from maplin complete with helmet cam - tried it out on a recent skiing holiday-really good & currently £99.99 (£50 off) until end of Feb. defenatly worth looking at in my opinon if you are after a cheap camera/video to take down the field.

cheers

I have been using the panasonic cameras they are great. I have the Lx1 with is a 10.2 meg camera. Shoots in widescreen and has a 28mm lens..

The are expensive, but the quality is superb.

Shoots vid in widescreen too, so great to edit into films. I will be mounting this cam in the wing for the tip 2 tip.

Like other LUMIX cameras, what distinguishes the DMC-LX1 from the rest is MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), a key feature Panasonic considers should be standard in all digital still cameras. Unintentional handshake, the major cause of digital camera misshooting, is controlled by MEGA O.I.S. to allow every user to take clear, beautiful images even indoors or at nighttime.

You can see why Dan likes it from this review. OIS must be a key feature.
