My ride home from work.....
Has anyone got, or can recommend a nice camera to use whilst riding a push bike? I would prefer if it can attach to the handlebars and HD quality
I want to record myself failing miserably as I crash doing mountain biking
Just noticed you can still buy flip cams
Might get one of these if I can find a handle bar mount, or someone recommends something better.

Both look good, but..
1st = No HD quality and I would like that and willing to pay a little extra for it.
2nd = GoPro looks nice but quite expensive ... might be an option if I can’t find anything cheaper
Still thinking of the flip cams and found some handlebar mounts, however the battery life seems rather bad ( Says up to 2 hours ) and also since they aren’t produced any more I thought someone might have created something similar but new.
Flip Video HD3 - £99.99 or £119.00 for 2 at IdealWorld
Pack of 2 Flip Mino HD3 Pocket Camcorder with 4GB (1 Hour) Memory - IdealWorld
Handy for when you crash and burn, and damage one (or could give 2nd one as a xmas present!)
Can you put sd cards into flip cams for extra storage?
I'm afraid not!
Use one after the other would give you 2 hrs of HD footage or 2 mounted together (side by side) would give you 1 hrs of 3D HD footage
The Gopro kit is awesome!
GoPro does look good
Been thinking more and considering using a phone instead. My phone is really old now and for a while I’ve been thinking about purchasing a new one. I've always liked the Iphone and it also has a video camera on it capable of recording HD.
Yes it's much more expensive than a camera alone^^ but it would save me buying a camera and a new phone in the future.
Anyone know how well an iPhone would handle a situation like this? Not sure how good the camera on them handles movement and vibration.
I would go for the GoPro too. They are almost indestructible (which is more than can be said for the iPhone).
I've had a Sanyo VPC-PD1. It's HD, uses SD cards, and has an (small) optical zoom. Plus it's pretty cheap.
And, for action shots, you get 60fps in 720.
