Helmet Camera Suggestions

Does anyone have one? I'd love to get one to record my schooling/hacking sessions with Excel, as I usually don't have anyone there to video. Any suggestions on what to look for? It would probably need to be waterproof for schooling the water jumps on XC, but would I need image stabilization? Anything else? Thanks!

As you know, I have one...it is the GoPro Hero Naked. Sweetest thing ever. It has HD video and picture, and it is impact resistant. It comes with 2 different doors; one to let sound in and one to make it waterproof.

Hope that helps! :)

Thanks VB! The picture looked pretty good on it. Will it attach to any helmet? And which do you have:

You have to buy a special strap to make it work on a riding helmet. I still haven't found the right one as I want a side mount. The top mounts seem to be more popular for other sports, so I am having a hard time finding the other one.

I have the second one.

Let me know if you find the right strap for it! The first is meant for a helmet and has the capability to attach it to the side.

I will! The thing about the one made for helmet mounting, is that it is made to stick onto the side of a helmet with a plastic outer. The sticky pad won't work on velvety riding helmets...
