I am looking for a pal camcorder with the following features:

video / audio perfect sychronization in recording and playback

high resolution in normal to low lightening conditions

high speed (ca 100 fps)

small in size

Its use is for a distance of ca. 3 foot / 1 meter



And what computer and capture/edit program do I need for a good analysis of video and audio.

A possible use could be if I want to train a sprinter to get better at getting off at the start shot, I could video it and see where he is a split second late or early upon the start shot. For this I need a good audio/video syncro.

I am not sure if this is the best place to get a response. Most people here are into digicams and DSLR's. Some have video capabilities, even HD video capabilities, but they are secondary to most.

If you want a great digicam for video and burst mode still shots, combinable into short videos, look at the Casio FH20. It shoots 40 PS at 7 megapixels and video clips at up to 1000FPS. Steve has done a review of this camera quite recently.

Here are a couple of other reviews:

Dear Robbo

Thank you for your answer. I had forgotten to mention that I need recordings of ca. 2 hours. Do you know a site that deals more with video camcorders that I could be looking for. I got onto Steve's site on a review of a video camcorder.

Try here: http://www.camcorderinfo.com/d/Revie...=Camcorder.htm#

Try CNET reviews, too.



Good luck!
