New "bullet cam" with DVR (like VIO) - Sierra MTB footage
I was just sent this cool cam setup from eHelmetCam.com to test out. It is a "bullet cam" with a full featured DVR.
It has a boatload of camera setting options as well as playback, preview etc... for about $400. One of the best things I've noticed so far is little to no "jello-ing" of the video when you hit the harsh chop.
Being a bullet cam style allows you to locate the camera in a lot more creative areas too... which I will be experimenting with
Currently I've got it mounted on my Tallboy full suspension 29er... yes, with a Lefty fork on it...
Here is some RAW video with some good views and some techy rock crawling:

Nice bike... I've got a Lefty with P321 blue hubs, too (on my Pivot)!
Are you going to tell us a bit more about the cam? Name or something so we can go look up specs and stuff?
Well, for now the spec's can be had at their site: ehelmetcam.com
I just got back fro MBO (Mountain Bike Oregon) and some incredible trails and great event... will post more video shortly!
Great footage, 29er on a lefty never seen one before always find looking down from the handle bars to a lefty a bit strange and that's on 26! But if it works it works.
Re the camera I'm looking for cheaper option - any suggestions on using an iPhone for POV?

I prefer frame mounts, but I personally would not want to subject my phone to those forces!
Here is a bit more raw video from the CamShot... some SWEET singletrack in Oregon
I really like the fact that I can do an ALL DAY ride and not run out of battery or disk space...
