Yep thats the one ATC2000, you can get them from halfords for £99 but if your going to the states then cheap as chips :-D You need to get yours self some memory cards too, 2gb SD cards. Got mine of ebay IIRC £12

www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&langId=-1&catalogId=10151&productId=263753&categoryId=31456

BTW, just recieved the head gasket from CN, IMHO i`d stick to the Lotus/Isuzu type

Have just bought a package from these guys who were very helpful to a technophobe with no need for a camcorder and certainly no desire to try and switch one on and off whilst motoring. These units do away with the camcorder and are much easier to operate. I'll bring it to Hethel and it'll defo be going to the Isle of Man.

Bought one of those Mini cams MD-80 of ebay for about £12 from Hong Kong (but it took 31 days to turn up :twisted: ) they are small, about the size of my thumb

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... K:MEWNX:IT

I used a 8gb Micro SD card from http://www.memorybits.co.uk/ gives approx 4 hrs footage (look for discount codes on there site)


Did a Test run with the camera attached to the front number plate, certainly good enough as a 2nd cam.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhCzaIasHJw

Need to buy a Shaving plug as the charger is only 2 prong.

the brackets aren`t very good as one of the little plastic lugs that hold the cam has snapped so i will use a plastic zip tie to hold in play.

The only thing is i don`t know how to remove the date and time in the vid

Has anyone got any video editing software that allows vid in vid footage? as i`m going to run two cameras and would like to have the other cam playing on a small screen inside the main footage.

these are flavour of the month at the moment

Clicky

For £8 and that quality you can't go wrong, plenty of uses too :poke:

Apparently you can rig up a remote control for them too. Order a couple for forward and reverse video on track.

Sorry about the link but i thought it more informative than the ebay link

Thats what we all thought when we saw/heard Monty at Donington 2 years ago. Still, Monty's an amateur compared to Stevo. He gets his dump valve to blow of in reverse gear :!: :!:

Surprisingly good quality!

Nothing to be ashamed of there - except an atmospherically vented blow off valve. ;-)

For just under a tenner one of these is now winging it's way to me. It's the same spec as the keyring camera in Chris's post but, I thought, a better shape for mounting.

I've also ordered an 8GB micro SDHC card for it. We shall see?

Well, unfortunately the video from Malvern convoy was shockingly bad (content, not quality!)

I had a pair of the keyring cams mounted to the front - one on the bumper, one on the roll hoops.

Bumper looks a bit shaky (well, very shaky!) and faces too far upwards - nice view of some street lights ands clouds, though!

The one from the roll hoops is better, but quite a lot of wind noise on the audio track.

It was just a bit of a practice before Castle Combe, but obviously i need more!

I think i might set it up as a webcam and run it to the laptop, so i can work out in 'real time' what i'm looking at and listening to - any thoughts?

Have to say though, apart from operator error/learning - the quality of sound and video is great (better than some of the stuff we use at work, and sufficiently good that i keep one on my keyring in case i need to leave it on the table in a cafe next to a baddie :lol:
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

go on - click this link - you know you want to!

I managed to get some good footage of the convoy, fore and aft, the only problem was the convoy was so disjointed that there weren't many Elans in it. Its over 10 mins long so i'll have to edit it down for youtube and post it in the appropriate section. I'm afraid i have got wind noise on the keyring video though and I don't think you'll be able to get round that unless you have the roof up or have a video of the inside of your glove box :lol:
