Liza wants to get a new video camera and wants Leo's recommendation. Leo says it depends on what she's planning to use it for. Camcorders are disappearing as more people rely on their still cameras and smart phones. Both of which do really good video these days. Liza says they don't shoot for very long, though. She wants to record soccer games from beginning to end. Leo recommends the Canon Vixia HF-R300 for under $300. Very high quality HD with the G10, but that's about $1,000. Liza will also want a tripod or monopod to mount it to.
If you want a first person point of view, the chatroom recommends the GoPro Hero 3.
