Gopro?

I want to install a camera to shoot our event at Thunderdome. Possibly in the arena roof (4 feet high) I think that I need something with a wide angle lense to get ALL of the 8 x8' arena in view. This is just to make sure that I get anything and everything on video. Others will hopefully take side views and slo mo, etc. I anticpate some of my bots getting very clost to the ceiling...lol

TIA

I absolutely love my gopro

They have a 170* field of view, the new models have built in wifi an come with a remote
You can operate the camera via remote or through the gopro app on a smart phone
You can live stream from the camera to your phone and I'm sure you could stream it to a computer/online as well but I've never dug into that

The new models will film at 60 fps in 1080 and 120 fps in 720 so theyre great for 1/4 speed slow motion (or even slower)

The hero3 black has the better quality but the hero3 silver is still an awesome camera with all of those features minus some of the quality (black is 12mp, silver is 11mp etc.)

I would recommend getting the motorsports edition because of the mounts it comes with

Can't really tell you the best place to get one, they're mostly all the same price
You might be able to get one cheaper off of eBay or craigslist
