I know of a new one developed as a joint venture between Sony and Arai, the Sony-Arai cam.

They are still working on the one you can use on the move, this one is only for stationary use.

Here is a pic.  ;D ;D ;D

I have a mini helmet cam, same type used by the TV guys. Top of the range. Mini cam on helmet or wherever you decide, storage device works with a SD card (not supplied)
Price - around R8100-00. Can supply more info via email if required, pm me your email.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Hi Nicki I have seen one of these before its amazing how it takes self portrates technology at its best  ;D ;D
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

I posted this in photography 101, very affordable to the average person.

The best (but not the cheapest) is a mounted bullet cam with separate solid state recorder.  Selecting the correct products will deliver broadcast quality video.  We use ActionCam pickups and ChaseCam recorders.

There are a couple of things to look for ??
PM for more info
One's ability lies in what you let yourself to believe is possible, and not the perceived limitations your body might have.

When in doubt, Gas It! It may not solve the problem, but it WILL end the suspense!

take a browse on http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/action-camera/index.html

You'll find quite a neat little unit which works off SD card memory and costs 100 pounds.

This is what I use, flat out around MX track, hardly any shake or shudder, waterproof 40 m ,playback on screen on site.

Soon 8hrs continuous shooting.

Not cheap though.
