I'd go to http://www.motovid.com and contact Mike there.  The site hasn't been updated for a while, but he does a lot of on bike stuff and is really up on the new stuff.  Cameras, formats, etc.

I just bought a used Canon mini DV off ebay for 100 bucks.  Make sure you get one that can handle external audio/video (ZR20 to ZR50's) and for convenience, they have a LANC port (to enable remote control).

Used camera 100
bullet camera 40 (mount anywhere on the bike)
Remote mic    12
Lanc cable     30 (not required, but nice to have)

thats what I got, runs off aa batteries and vid stores on a 2 gig sd card.  2gigs on the highest setting will record for an hour.  easy transfers on to a computer with the sd card :boink:

For $170, who fricken cares? That's why I went w the ATC2K. Descent video at a descent price. Perfect amount of record time for the track too.
