    I believe this topic has been covered several times in the GD Forum. Do a search there first. If not, try Passion, then DH/Freeride. There is some very good advice in the threads as I recall.

    Good luck.

    Samsung makes a really cool little digital video camera that comes with a remote lens to mount on the helmet. The camera itself is slightly larger than the hand and the lens for the helmet is a little bigger than a AA battery. You can find them at Best Buy for around 500-600 dollars.

    There are a bunch of threads on "helmet cams" at a really cool site named MTBReviews.com. You might want to do a search for "helmet cam" there and see what you find!? :D

    The Tony Hawk and Oregon Scientific have just come out, but noone seems to own one yet. Take a look at PricePoint, they have some lipstick cams on sale cheap. The opinions on which digital camcorder to hook it up to vary widely. Search for "Wherewolf" and for "Winston"; they post videos almost every week and have links to their sites with camera recommendations and details on what they use.
