I want to do a helmet cam on the cheap. I'm too lazy to spend a week researching my options. Can anyone point me in the direction of a cheap dv cam? I've seen a couple in the $200-$250 range. Are these good enough or would the resulting videos be terrible quality? And is there any option other than viosport for the helmet cam itself?

Recording in MPEG4 to digital media isn't a very good capture format IMO.

The Samsung is a POS ( http://www.camcorderinfo.com/content/Samsung-SC-X105L-Camcorder-Review.htm)

If he's set on using a lipstick cam his cheapest route is a used mini dv from ebay and the best lipstick cam that he can afford.

Lipstick sources other than Viosport:
