Two of the latest "big" things in consumer digital video cameras are the
release of the first "high definition" consumer video camera (JVC's GRHD1,
street price ~$2,000) and Panasonic's release of very inexpensive 3 CCD
video cameras (Panasonic PV-GS120, street price ~$500).  It sounds like the
picture of the GRHD1 is fantastic on HD TVs, but since most people don't
have a high-definition television set yet, it may be tough to make use of
this advance.  Also, it's a bit bigger than the typical "mid-size" consumer
video cameras, making it a little more to deal with for skiing.  The
Panasonic 3 CCD models are probably a good option, since they are small,
affordable, and are reported to produce much better images than your typical
1 CCD video camera (basically every other modestly-priced video camera out
there).  I haven't seen the images from either of these cameras yet, but
they are certainly things to take a look at.
