    helmet cam attaching to digicam?

    I really enjoy the vids people put out here. We are shopping for replacement for our old s110 digicam, one that can take a video longer than 6 seconds! My question is this: is there a small digicam (like the s110) that I can plug one of those helmet lipstick cams into and throw in my camelback and take a 3 min vid with? Anyone ever just attach the small camera to your helmet somehow and then just ride for 3 mins?
    I dont want to get a digicamcorder. I just wanted some info on this as it might steer me one way or another in my digicam purchase. right now we are looking at the canon sd410. I am just a little hesitant to tape a new camera to my helmet and ride a little downhill techy section!
    Thanks!

    I don't know of any digicams that take video input. But for excellent video from a digicam get a Canon S1 IS, 640x480 30fps video - 5 min 45 sec with a 512MB card.

    I have looked for this before. THere are cameras out there that will work. A google search will yeild a lot of results. In Newsweek this week, there was an advertisement/article for a camera that has the same set up you are asking about. Sorry I do no have the details.

    Here is one page:
