I like the helmet cam myself cuz you can record anywhere you look. The gas tank camera records only whats in front of you.

but a helmet cam gets to be twitchy. kinda moves all the time.
A good tank or stem mount works best in my 02

a rearview cam. records Sunday rides, playback on dvd's, computers, and uses it as a rearview cam era. Get rid of the ugly mirrors.

Don't most helmet cams require a camcorder to record the video? Most of the ones I have seen do. I made some mounts for the front and rear views and took some video of my rides. The tank mounted cam is very stable and easier to watch without getting sea sick. Got to my homepage here and you can watch my videos. http://home.earthlink.net/~bdmpastx

I use www.sportbikecam.com and I love it. For the camcorder I just use a Sony one from Best Buy.

I would just go with the sportbikecam mount and catch a mini dv camcorder on sale. You can get them for $199.00 now. I don't think video quality will be an issue with this setup, just make sure that you get get a camera with image stabilization.

well i think if i went with the gas tank mount... i'd go with the 'mantis'

http://www.newenoughhp.com/powerstan...ystem_page.htm

be able to mount it with practically any desired postition above or below the windscreen is a nice feature...

I recently bought a helmet cam. Today I want a camcorder so I was searching old posts to see if I could get any tips on a camcorder. I have a few words for you.

YOU, YOU, YOU

They got some really nice camera setups that have me drooling. I would love to have one of these setups.
