    hi all,

    sorry not sure if this the correct forum but I really need some advice on choosing a compact HD camera.

    I need to do some footage of dingy and yacht racing, i have a sony ex1 but concerned about water spray , the waterproof housings are also very expensive and cumbersome.

    I’m looking for a small compact camera that would ideally have great quality footage similar to the ex1, complete manual/auto settings, can fit extreme wide angle lens, also slow motion capabilities would be great and water proof/splash proof.

    looked at
    sony sony CX7K with water proof housing
    sony HXR-MC1 example footage

    I know i’m asking alot but any advice would be most welcome.

    many thanks
