Looking for a helmet cam???

Me and one of my buddies are looking at getting a Helmet cam this summer. I have no idea where to find them and what the price range for them is. I was hoping someone would be able to give me some info.
BTW i'm not looking for the top of the line one just something that'll work well.
Thanks and cheers

Viosport has a great following...but the specs of this one actually look better...

Dont both companies sell almost the same exact camera and accessories? I know that the helmetcamera place sells a metal case for the camera but thats about the only difference. I'd go with viosport.

Not to sure what kind it is or any specs about it. My friend just got it for Christmas. I know it's a digital Camcorder though so i'm guessing it can't be all that bad. Considering that we made a 10 minute movie this summer from 30 second clips that we took with his digital camera.

I use the one from helmetcamera.com and the housing for the camera is a big plus. We have crashed alot wearing them and there is no damage to the camera. I am not sure if Viosport is the same camera because the one I use is submersable to 100'. I also just recieved me remote switch for it and it is great. Saves batt. life and you can record just what you want. If you want to see what they pics look like you can go to this thread

Click one the link then download from the video page some short vids we shot.

The new "hottest thing" is xtreme recall. they cater to a lot of pro teams but are still about the same cost as everyone else.
