    I was going to my fiends ranch today, so my parents gave my brother, my friend and myself helmet cams.

    I got a good gap-to-road crash today with it. Thank god I didn't hit my head. Its really funny- first I go down, then my bike goes the left, then I get tangled with it, then you see my feet spin as I roll. :D Its not a hard gap, but I was trying a new run in.

    It just takes a memory card- no DV cam; that cool. The max resolution it has is 640x480. On my Tv, its not so sharp, but when I make a final/ complete video, I will see if I can make it one size, so it doesn't strech to big tv's.

    Did anyone else get an early one?

    I am thinking about making a cover out of soft thick tubing and pvc so it doesn't get destroyed if I fall on my head.

    For $120 that ain't too bad. Get a giant memory card and you'll be set :)

    Yeah get some roll cage padding for it. That way it has some protection incase you fall. It may not be great for TV but ideal for the computer!

    Yeah, I'm going to get a few cards, maybe at ebay. I'm definately going ot make a protective case that somehow goes around the mount.
