    Well, I am a 'pro' I guess. I make my living producing video. Doesn't mean
    I know what I'm talking about always. However, I don't believe anyone makes
    a camera rigged as you describe as a stock item. I'm sure the mounting of
    the top handle is custom. Now, you be more specific about what your
    requirements are, what your budget is, whether camera weight is important,
    whether you mean an external gyro-stabilizer or the internal anti-shake
    feature? Are XLR microphone jacks important. Will you be using an
    on-camera microphone. How important is having a large viewfinder? Wide
    angle & fish-eye lenses are extra cost accessories that can be had at a
    range of prices for any MiniDV camera.

    Admittedly I have never seen a "skate camera" rig. Neither have most of the
    other professionals here, I suspect. So give us more information or quit
    your bitching.

    Here are names of cameras: Sony VX2100 & Panasonic DX100. Good luck. Now,
    go do your own homework. I'm done.

    You know, I've talked to a few skateboard guys. Without exception,
    I've found them to be good guys.

    I want you to know that this guy is an exception to the rule. They
    aren't all rude retards.

    Most of us who make a living at video are still trying to figure out what
    you're asking for. Just repeating yourself or saying "you know - - a
    skate camera" isn't very illuminating. And deciphering all those
    "text-er" keyboard shortcuts makes your posts all that much more difficult
    to read. We just shrug and go back to "do-ing" video.

    Here's a few tips :

    - Use standard English. The folks most likely to be able to solve your
    problem _are_ a bit older, and we're less likely to write you off that
    way.

    - Explain what a "skate camera" looks like. include a link to a picture
    and we'll be more likely to "get it" Someone will probably have some
    relevant experience with a similar rig.

    - Answer the questions that Steve King asked you in his last post. There
    are a lot of cameras on the market, and recommending the best one for you
    will depend on those answers.
