If you get one from www.helmetcamera.com dont use the tinted lens. Its really too dark and distorts the color of the picture. Other than that I have no problems with this company and they make a excellent product. The picture is awesome with my Digital8 camcorder.

I have the one from Helmetcamera.com and it takes pretty good video. I've had a few problems getting it to work properly but all in all I guess I'm happy with it. However, I used it this weekend and it was pretty hot out. The battery sort of blew up. It didn't explode but it got bloated and is now non functional. So I need a new battery...$$$

Actually, I think the big problem is my digital camera. I have a Canon ZR10 and the plugs kept coming apart. Taping it real good solved that problem. Then I started having problems when the rocks and hard jolts made the heads jump, causing digital artifacting of the video. I used a regular belt to help secure my backpack more to keep it from moving. That seemed to help too.

Then I noticed on my last ride I was missing sections of video. There would be video and then just blue screen, video, blue screen...etc. for about 20 minutes. I think this was because the cord came untaped from my helmet and was pulling on the helmetcam itself. I hope anyway.

I agree about the tinted lens. It is too dark. They also scratch pretty easily. So those are just a few things I've gone through to get this thing to work properly.

Ron, I think you could be more organized with your information regarding the helmetcam stuff.... I mean, Get your act together. What is this rookie hour?? :)

I wish I was going riding with you guys this weekend but I'll be in Bass Lake doing a dualsport ride with my Dad and Brother, otherwise I'de be there... See ya, Dan
