Antandpete used a Sony DV camera and a DVD recorder, simply change the DVD when it's full or nearly full and then you won't miss anything if you get less on the DVD than expected.

However, doing this only lets you have 1 camera, if you want more, then I would suggest a powerful laptop and some bullet cameras and some large removable hard drives, then you would place them in places like the front grill or in the dashboard facing both driver and passenger.

Lots of footage from a car does not come cheaply, sure you can budget on the camera and dvd recorder, but this is still going to cost a fair ammount of money.

Hello and welcome Wanker!

Last year we used a headrest and suction mount from Hague Camera mounts (http://www.b-hague.co.uk/camera%20supports%20systems.htm) here in the UK.
However, in the 2005 Gumball we will be using a number of Sony 'bullet' camera's (http://www.rfconcepts.co.uk/sony_colour_ccd.htm) mounted in various places.

Our website has some cool videos from this years Gumball where we mainly used the headrest mount.

www.antandpete.co.uk However you may need to check back as the server is being updated.

Hope this helps.

anymore questions, pm me!

:cheers: ant.

Ant,

How do you connect up the bullet cams then? Via a laptop as suggested in the previous post? Also on the Gumball next year and want somthing better than we produced on this years rally.

Thanks very much Ant. I have several more questions regarding this... The Sony bullet style camera's look ideal, but I don't quite understand where the recorded video is stored. Do you need a dvd recorder in your car as well?

Also, I visited your website a few days before it went down and I must thank you once more for a wonderful glimpse into the gumball lifestyle that I'm sure most of us on the board long to experience.

The bullet camera's simply have 3 phono leads to connect to any device, dv camcorder, VCR or a DVD recorder like ours.

We have not yet sorted out what to do about the multiple cameras tho, but rest assured, we will record every second that we are driving just like this year!
