Xacti VPC-E1
Hello, i am looking to purchase this camera for use while underway kitesurfing, and gain an idea on suitability, have looked thru steve's review.
Would carry camera in vest pocket on a bungee for easy access either hand, allowing full arms length to shoot and a short lanyard to minimise gear tangles and have camera in a position to hold when a hand is free from the control bar, continue shooting or slip back into pocket.
Aside from the intended use, noted from the review the screen can be turned and folded back to the body,screen out, is it also possible to record with screen in fully folded use like pistol, my concern here is screen exposed to knocks and durability to go the sport.
Any feedback appreciated.
