Default helmet camera or any other motorbike suitable camera

Hello there,

Apologies if I'm in the wrong section, but I would like to get a video camera to use on my bike.

I would like if someone can recommend me or even sell me a decent camera.

Something with good night time sensitivity
Nice wide angled recording
and good quality.

Contour 1080p is excellent quality, easy to use, 2 different angles.
Not waterproof much, and no idea how well it works at night

just had a look at it, looks pretty good but it's quite pricey!

the other end of the spectrum is the little MD80.
They cost a tenner, and they do work, so long as they are not mounted where there is vibration

Hey there I bought one of these from ebay last year,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-DV-DV...ht_1621wt_1189

It's 10 quid and actually half decent. I use Black Tack ( better bluetack ) it's so light i can secure it anywhere.

It comes with a mount too.

If you want reply to this i can put a video i made with it on youtube for you

(just noticed, the bloke above has mentioned the same thing. )

That's an MD80 as I mentioned.
They work well for what they are

Thanks guys, yes please if you can put up an example clip that would be great! Preferably on your bike ride just to see how it deals with the vibrations ..

Thanks!

Here's one I made with it attached to the fairing. The quality isn't brilliant but for the price you can't complain
