    Hey all, First post here after finding this forum after endless searching for an answer to my question. Hope you can help :)

    Basically I live in the UK and I am currently seeking a nice camera/camcorder so I can capture some footage of myself playing (trouble shoot that backhand) and our local club :)

    I searched now for a few days looking for help but many of the peoples responses actually offer very little useful information but I am hoping you guys can help me out. Budget would be around £200 sterling so that's about $320 USD.

    I wont rush into buying anything and want to be confident with the purchase. I have looked at the Pana hdc SD40, anyone used it before to record a game?

    Anyway thanks for reading :)

    Baz

    have you considered getting a point&shoot camera that also record videos?

    i have a canon SD4000IS which can do 240fps video which is wonderful for slow motion analysis. i have also recorded games with it and it works pretty well.

    it doesn't have the bells and whistles of a proper camcorder but if your requirement is simply able to record badminton stuff, something similar will suffice.

    Thanks mate, I had a look at it and it seems like a nice little camera! Was wondering if you had uploaded any footage of the slowmo or a game or both? Would love to see it in action :)

    What do you think of that panasonic? And have you seen any footage of badders on a Zodak Playsport Zx5? They seem to be popular
