I'm looking for a flash drive digicam that I can use on a hanlde bar mount (I have a mount already) to take video while on my motorcyle. I would also like to figure out a way to mount the same camera on the side of a helmet while my son is racing his go-kart.
I would like to get at least D1/720x480/30fps on a small light weight unit that can make use of a 4gb card (or more). I've been looking at the Jazz HDV-178 but other suggestions are welcome. I want to stay with a self contained recorder and hopefully in the $100 range.
I have one specific question about the 178, will it record with the visor in the closed postition? Does anyone know? If not, do you know of another unit that does?
Thanks from a newbie.
