Default "808" Keychain camera ($15 on ebay)

I bought one of these tiny keychain cameras to play with. They take 640x480 video and up to a 8gb micro-sd card. I plan on using it as a simple "'rear-view" camera on the dirtbike. I have to add a wide angle lens and mount it in a waterproof enclosure. Take a look at the sample video on Vimeo, it was taken on a very overcast, snowy day.


You can't beat the video quality for $15.

Sample video: http://www.vimeo.com/8086702

This is what I plan on using it for, a rear facing view. This video was made with a GoPro HD and my old Vupoint (as the rear view). Editing done in Sony Vegas. http://www.vimeo.com/8044820

The audio is a bit low, but it is there. I have no idea what Vimeo's conversion process did to it.

You can download the original file if you are a member, there is a link in the lower right corner of the page.

I uploaded the file again, replacing the original.
Sound is working.

I bought it from this company: http://shop.ebay.com/auctioninchina/...&_trksid=p4340
It took 16 days to arrive (Mass.)
