    Best buy sells them if you want a cheap one.

    If you want a good one get one of these:
    http://www.viosport.com/

    I got one and it works great. You have to use your existing camcorder though. I just stuff my camcorder into an empty camelbak and mount the camera on my helmet.

    Another website to check into is www.helmetcamera.com. They make several different packages since most of the cameras themselves are Sony built. They have one that uses a small VTR as apposed to a camcorder. I have used the camcorder version with mixed results both MTB and snowboarding. Next time I will spend the extra money for the VTR.
