    Small cheap camera for bike commuting

    Hello all,

    Any recommendations for a small light helmet mounted (or bar mounted) camera for commuting. Nothing fancy, just something with basic capabilities that is small and will record up to an hour of footage. I commute to and from Boston a few times a week and while it's normally okay but every once in a while I do run into innattentive/aggressive drivers. I need a camera that if an incident occured I could use to get police to pay attention to aggressive drivers (last incident was a driver doing an illegal U-Turn from the opposite traveling lane, swerving into the bike lane and almost pinning the cyclist ahead of me between her car and a parked car, all while she was on the phone, and then cursing out said cyclist when he let her know what she did was illegal/deadly).

    What iconicflux said. Actually I have two of them with external chargers but I've just upgraded to a Contour Roam and an ExtremeCam, PM me if you want to buy a lightly used 808 #16

    I upgraded because it rains a lot and I got tired of having to put it on and off, and I decided it was worth $180 to just get a camera that I could just put on and forget about.

    Here's a video I shot with the 808. Keep in mind it was overcast that day.
