Bike Cam's

So, I want to get a camera that saves to an sd-card & can be mounted on the bike & take video...For under $100.00. But - quality at that price appears to be a toss up or non-existant from reviews I've read.

Has anyone used a "cheap" camera for bike video? & if so -
what brand/model?
Also - is it satisfactory or not?

Best,
Fred

I got one of the Tony Hawk Digital Blue helmet cams for 50.00 at Game Stop. Works pretty good for teaching although not the best quality pic. Good for internet files etc. though. ANd the best part is it was only 50.00..........

That's pretty cool, but I'm guessing that rechargeable is going to sting.

I have one of those also. I only used it once and mounted it on my helmet, which took me forever to figure out how to do it. The way it's shown in the picture, I could not do, cause it would not fit. So, I put the elastic strap through my visor and lower half of the helmet and it didn't work all that well so I haven't used it since then. It was too difficult to get the camera straightened out so that I could get a level video. I couldn't find any place to mount it on my bike. I was hoping I could find a way rather than put in on my helmet. Any ideas on how I can do that? I wonder if I could put it on the frame sliders..?

the trouble with helmet cams as u have a tendency to move your head and the video gets kinda anoying with all the movement.
better to get a tank mount and just mount a normal video camera. have had 2 differant kinds of mounts and both take work great once mounted
