    I took a look at this the other day at Best Buy. Action cam. Various mounts available. Pricey.

    I shoot short videos with my digital camera. Rarely.

    What photo camera do you have now?
    A lot of them take very good videos as well.
    You could just get any decent compact camera
    but the tricky part is the mounting, especially
    if you want to place the camera on your head -
    helmet. Also with regular cameras you're a bit
    limited with the recording time, maybe 15 -30
    minutes. This is why some folks get action/sport
    specific cameras - GoPro, Contour, etc. They
    have longer recording times( a few hours some of them)
    and have different mounting options.

    Contour GPS mounted on the bars with 2 pieces of inner tube:


    Samsung HZ30W camera mounted on the bars w/ Fotopro mount:
