I have been looking for a small and inexpensive weather resistant helmet-mounted camera for a while.

Here is a link to the Oregon Scientific ATC-2000 web site. cid=30&scid=127 You can find better prices from other sources, but the OS site will give you some of the particulars of the camera.there are lots of HD helmet cameras now.

-Gopro HD -Contour HD -Drift HD170 -Oregon HD the prices are getting lower due to competition.

there are also other china made helmet cambut quality is not that good.

try to check on helmet cam forum have both the Gopro HD and Contour HD and each has pros and cons, but the Go Pro HD is hands downs better video quality over all.

The Contour HD is better accessibility but recent firmware changes to the Go Pro HD improved it.

The Go Pro HD package is waterproof but the Contour HD is 'weather resistant' which means don't get it wet..

The Contour HD is easier to switch on recording on the fly and pause.. The Go Pro HD is now capable of one touch start recording but its not as easy as the other one.

I noticed that he had an odd-looking flashlight mounted under the brim of his fire helmet.

When I asked him about his fancy new "flashlight," he proudly showed me his helmet cam. The camera was small, weighed less than half a pound, cost less than 0.00, and recorded 640x480 video at 30 fps onto an SD memory card.

A 2gig card will give you around one hour of recording time. The video resolution is limited, vibration seems to create annoying waves in the video, the file format is not supported by many computers, and the camera appears to be susceptible to RF interference.

Even so, for less than 0.00 (on-line retailers) it could be a pretty useful addition for sports video producers.
