Im looking to make a few "on the road" vids (of my loverly area), but couldnt find any camcorders used for under $125. I seen one new at a Liquidators store for $50 (6 megapixel) but Im wary. If anyone has an old one that they dont use anymore, lemme know. Need something fairly compact btw. Willing to do trades as well.

I've got a pair of sunglasses with a cam built into them. The video isn't bad. It's set at a 640x480 pixle & it has audio (which gets nothing but wind) but all in all not a bad shot.
I don't use them any more for two reasons.

1. It auto focuses & it always focuses on my windshield.
2. I found them a bit complicated to operate. (knowing when your recording)

If your interested in them & you don't have a windshield you might want to give them a try. I'd ship them for $20.

Let me know if your interested.

Kanuck...Sadly, I have a windshield and wear WW1 aviator goggles, but thanks for the offer...might come back to it yet.

bow...lotta nice riding roads around here. All country...woods, mountains and twisties...and besides, since the NYS law changed, a lotta chickies go out on the lake topless now, lol. Also, I wanna send a vid to my brother in the Ukraine, and my daughter in Brooklyn.

Kuf...looks pretty good besides the 640x480....I like the mount set that comes with it ! That places the cam irtself around $50.

I was just really hoping for a 720p one though. I did find one at my computer supply place (Geeks.com) for like $40 (they got great prices!)....

Its a butt ugly blue, with no mounts, but fer that price, I can buy a nice mount if I cant make one.

Thanks JT...I like the slim profile of that. Perfect for a helmet side mount !
