yeah! Azylum's cams are perfect!!! I did the frame slider mount, and am about to do the helmet cam. They work great if you have seen my video's.

I just bought one of these and will be getting my first footage on 3/10 at Cresson. I will post up after and let you know the results...

http://www.goprocamera.com/

I bought the Motorsports Hero package. It gets about 56 minutes of footage per 2 GB SD card. The motorsports package comes w/ all sorts of things to attach it to different surfaces...

Here is some test footage from the front bumbper of a car at Infineon Raceway: http://gopro.vsocial.com/#102853

Rather than cut up my CF helmet, I use a bullet cam mounted to the side, with velcro. So far as sound, all you get is wind noise, but it has a 2GB SD card that records about 1.5 hours.

i made my own tank mount for $6... works ok. JB weld a 1/4 inch nut into the stem where the forks connect to the frame... bend a 6" long eye bolt to put a screw through to attach the camera... then screw the eye bolt into the JB welded nut on the bike and that's it... $6 camera mount

I found these online.

http://www2.oregonscientific.com/sho...id=107&pid=709

I've wanted to get one but bought 3 digital cameras last year so if I went for a 4th my wife would kill me. They seem to do well, they had test videos somewhere on there. Not a bad price either. And waterproof so you can film in the rain.

I have the older version, non-waterproof. Works fine.

That is very similar to the GoPro I have. The GoPro goes in a case and is good up to 100' of water. Not sure you would have any light that deep to film anything...

LOL. Yeah for real. Gotta be dark that deep. The video I saw with it had music dubbed in so I didn't think it had a mic. But I saw another one with sound so apparently it does.

Oregon Scientific atc-2k

Some of the vid quality is lost in upload but as viewed as an mpeg-2 saved on hard drive or vcd it looks good, sound quality from mic is crappy at speed due to wind noise but for the money it works great. Uses 2 aa batts & is good for about 1hr recording time at best resolution with a 2g sd card.
