If you want to share your outdoor sports adventures with family and friends (and the Internet), you cannot do better than recording your fun with a purpose-built sports camera. You may have tried a variety of point-and-shoot, or digital SLR, cameras, but they may be difficult to operate while you're underway with your activities, or just not rugged enough.
Enter the GoPro HERO2 Outdoor Edition Camcorder ($200 and free shipping from REI). For a POV perspective in tough environments, you just can't beat this camera while single-tracking, skiing, surfing, parachuting, or riding ATV's in Utah (my favorite); you name it, and the GoPro will handle it with ease. With a 170 degree wide-angle lens, your choice of 720, 960, or 1080p HD video, or 5, 8, 11mp still pictures, you get top-shelf images, no matter what death-defying fix you've gotten yourself into. The camera features a host of accessories, including head and helmet straps, and curved and flat surface mounts. Nice.
