sportsman, i do a lot (and I mean a lot of filming for my college’s sports teams. My advice is to stay away from JVC camcorders. that is what our athletic department bought and they are absolutely junk after all the hours we put on the heads. Definitely go with minidv cameras though. Hard drive cameras compress video too muck IMO. Honestly the thing that makes a good game tape is a good tripod. you can have the nicest camera out there but without a nice tripod your game tapes will be junk. trust me on that.
