And if there is anyone who is reading this thread who is going to attend the workshop, but doesn't have a high-def video camera yet, I have a suggestion that may work.
It's the Aiptek HDV21X.
It does 1440x1080 (not quite true 1920x1080), but very close, and at only $177 for a portable HD video camera, it isn't a bad deal. Could use stabalization, but again, this is only $177 and it would be so much better than that crummy cell phone captured TR2N trailer that we have to watch.
And, this thing is small, so you should be able to sneak it into the workshop with no problem.
Aiptek has always been known for making tiny portable video cameras and this one is pretty small for HD.
It's probably the stealthiest HD video camera you will find in that price range. If anyone has any other suggestions, please post them as well.
Whatever it takes to get the TR2N trailer in a decent viewable format is what we are all after. Remember, it doesn't have stabalization so you will need to hold it very still while filming.
I'm not sure if the above price is a sale price or not. It used to be $199 when it came out and even that was considered a good price so at $177, it should be just what any reindeer flottilla would need to score a copy of the TR2N trailer in HD.
