The type of attitudes that the local motorist are exhibiting this past week, having a very healthy budget cycling budget, thanks to a reduced motor vehicle budget, a couple of video cams are definitely on the commuting horizon. Lots of good info on this thread.
That is part of the motivation.

The menu claim's I can get another hour of 640*480 with 45 minutes already used on board or 31 minutes of 1280*720. This with a 8 gig sd card.
