What about something like this?

If I bought a camera like that would I still need the new H2n and deadkitten? Or would I just use a deadcat on the onboard microphone?
The SX30IS has a CCD sensor. It's what I'm using now, but as I said it maxes out at 720p and there are
times that I wish I had 1080p when tracking small fast moving targets.

With a camera like the panasonic above, you should be able to get the dead cat on the onboard
mic, although hard to say if you'd get the high gain of the H2 or stereo imaging. Getting
rid of the wind noise goes a long way toward a quality DS vid though.
