What kind of battery life are you getting out of that unit? Is it adversly affected by the cold, as is my digi 8mm handy cam? 1g is not to terible of a price!
Battery life is never that great when you take electronics into the mtns in the winter. I always take at least one extra battery to be safe.
In terms of the Canon HV10 battery life I'd say that its not the greatest. I dont know if HD draws more power or if the battery is just week but it seems to only last about 40mins. Its not that big of a deal though (other than more $$) to carry an extra. They also make a longer life battery that I'll be getting soon for longer trips when 2 isnt enough.
It is a palm size HD camcorder and will have my helmet cam set up to up when in descent mode. I really like Skullcamz.com camera!! It is the only one that I have found to have Super HAD Processor at 580 lines and cheaper than most less quality ones.
