    Hey everyone!!

    I am looking for a good affordable solution for shooting 29fps 1080p multi angle drum cover videos. I currently shoot with a Canon T2i, but buying 3 more of those just doesn't fit the budget. ;)

    Would you guys recommend some good camcorder that'd get the job(s) done?

    I'd really like to shoot with the T2i and get 2 other cameras to add. Would that mess up the quality consistency?

    Thanks one and all!!

    Gopro HD. Sure it's a "helmet cam" but can be mounted to pretty much anything and has a nice wide lowlight lens and they are relatively cheap.

    They are awesome but only at well lit scenes.
    I tested mine during a gig and it was bunk but the audio was pretty decent.
    Mind you it was a dark room and the camera was one level up by the sound-board. The lighting was crap but saved by the projector screen lit-up (yes that bad of a bar/gig).
    Now as far as what its actual uses are for, I was blown away when I brought it out for a snowboard week at Big White (Kelowna B.C.). On sunny dayz it was uber cool ;)
