Looking for some advice/recommendations for a video camera system.
Needs to be able to be mounted externally.

Any advice must appreciated!

check out GoPro Hero's (wide)

We have one but havent really used it proplely yet. Sound isnt the best, and it seems to zip through the batteries.

Plus points... its tiny and has a wide angle lense.....

I've got the older version of this.

http://www.oregonscientific.co.uk/prod_atc5k_digital_action_camera.htm

Cost about 80, and works pretty well.
Bit of wind noise (maybe because it's mounted on my front bumper) but the picture is good.

That's a better price Dunky.

I first saw them on the Gadget Show on Channel 5.
They use them for actual filming when testing outside gadgets in poor conditions.

I was great Dunky, bloody huge. There's no British Show even comes close to it. Think I took about 300 photo's.
I'll get round to putting them on Nick's flickr account this week.
