Default Handsfree video recorder

I have been looking for a handfree video recorder to take some videos of fishing trips and put them on a website. I have a Sony DCR-HC46. First, I would like to be fishing and cant if I am filming, so that's frustrating. The camera has a docking station that has a DV input connection. Does that mean I can use the docking station with camera connected as a recorder for some sort of handsfree headmount or other type of mounted device?

If not, what are some options I should consider? I looked at the blackeye camera and it looked interesting due to the headband setup. Then I found I needed a recorder and an SD Card, and did not have a A/V in on the Sony. It has an SD card though. This Sony is not listed on Blackeye compatible equipment.

Is there a camera that could feed thru the Sony? or if not what could I look at to get a handsfree recording while fishing. Is it as simple as figuring out how to put one of the Sony bloggies in a headband or armband? Or am I dreaming?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks Joey, thats the kind of camera I was looking for. I didnt see it show up on a google search so the forum was definately a good route for me to take.

Looks like I may need to be wearing a helmet fishing when filming. Will have to see what can be done.
