    Wow, the bottom video is amazingly smooth compared to other bike cam vids I've seen on the net. Is the image stabilization in the camera, done in post-processing, or in the physical mount? ...and can you teach me how to make my ATC-2K do that? I thought getting a bullet camera would be a fun addition for our MiniDV recorder, but haven't seen enough good videos to justify trying it.

    I use a Sony 520 Ex view micro cam pluged into a Sony mini DV camcorder. Its all in the mounting of the helmet camera

    I could only get two of the videos on that entire site to work. And those two I watched over and over.

    Videos are distorted

    The videos are distorted since you took video shot in 4:3 and stretched it out to look like wide-screen. Can your "actioncams" actually shoot in wide screen? The quality also suffers from blowing it up too much. E.g. here is the original video for the posted Third Divide video: http://www.321actioncams.com/media/Sequence_016.wmv

    As far as I know, all of the remote lenses with the Sony chipset shoot in 4:3.

    I know of no remote lens that shoots in 16:9.

    I'm using Adobe Elements to produce my vids, and Adobe allows the mixing of 4:3 and 16:9
    footage without distorting either. It places the correct black banding on the correct boarders
    for the respective footage.

    Now, this is squashed-to-crap-by-flash-conversion YouTube, but you can see the mix of
    the two formats. The remote lens uses the Sony chipset:

    No my action cams do'nt shoot wide screen. Thank you for the feed back on the footage.
    I have the choice to go true 16:9. What do you think,back to the original size or go 16:9

    Ya know...

    The world is going to HD and 16:9

    If you can get a Sony chipset with 16:9, and it's true 16:9 (meaning no loss of pixels) then I'd
    say go for it.

    man those look to be some pretty fast rides. we went up there last weekend for the first time and basically just drove up the fireroad, parked and rode 1st divide. snow level was about 6500 feet so going to the top didnt seem like an option.
