better be good for $850
I just got that one for Xmas and love it so far!!!! still learning how to use it and set the lens right so you get the best sight line while riding.
That is a unique helmet cam.. I like it.
I got one from onBoard.tv and they are great, very compact -- probably even more so than that one.
$750 here with free shipping in the US:
And you can mount it to a gun!!! Woohoo....famous redneck last words, hey ya'll watch this
I'm curious to read a report (set-up, battery duration, is a 2Gig card limiting, etc...) and see some first hand videos filmed with this camera as I am planning to buy it.
That looks like a very nice camera, Just a little dissapointing that for that price, It only comes with 1gig of storage. I think I owuld personally rather a regular digital recorder, with a Lipstick style helmet cam attachment. But I do want to see some footage from someone here who has one before I decide for sure what I want to get
It comes with a 1gig memory card but you can use a 2gig if you wish. However the firmware currently limits it to 2gig memory cards (for reasons I am not aware of). Still, the firmware can be upgraded so when it's possible to use more than 2gig you can use a greater capacity card after the upgrade. That's really nice IMO. I don't know if there'll be a cost for the firmware upgrade.
According to the link I posted with 2gig you can record up to 1h26min using the highest resolution available. Pretty good.
And, with the cards being small and inexpensive, you could carry multiple cards to extend the recording time.
Yeah I saw you can swap it to a 2 gig, but still doesnt seem like very much storage for that much money, I am curious though what it would cost to upgrade to hold more
The footage I've seen from those things still sucks.
Either there's no shutter speed adjustment or or the processor can't handle fast motion too well.
Even the propaganda footage on their website looks weak.
The motorcycle racing filmed with it looks good to me:

My buddy bought one from here: http://www.helmetcamera.com/
Not sure about price......but works good.
We ran into this problem with our camera. We were told we could get upgrades and use a 4GB card and that's simply not the case so we have an expensive card that is useless to us and since we opened the package, can't be returned!
