    GD,that looks like something that would work. have you youtube'd any vids with it?

    Double S, that is a nice set up you have there. not just the camera,either. $1100 is way morethan i have to get started.
    i have not put anything on youtube,and i dont even know how to to be honest.but i paid 350 for it at best buy,spent alot of time researching and alot of time shoping around,in he long run im very happy i bought it.takes great video and the led light on the front is wayway bright.i used it to work on my rig on a back road in the middle of the night.takes good night vid.we really wanted somthing to vid my daughters and for hunting.im taking it with me on my 10 day trip

    Hawg, I use a JVC Everio S. Model GZ-MS120. Not the best in low light, but it's small, handy, and does a pretty good job. Sound kinda sucks on it though. It uses the SD cards, so it's easy to transfer to a computer. Pretty cheap cam, and well worth the price for me. Only thing I don't like about them is they have some chrome accents, so I had to break out the camo tape and start covering everything.

    I'm not sure of the make or cost, but I know they make a camera that screws into your stabilizer mount that use an SD card.

    The problem with the video glasses is that they shoot what your head is pointed at. That is very seldom what you are shooting at. I'd imagine that you'd be filming what was just to the right of your target all the time. That's if you are a righty. lol

    Amazon has them cheaper but I'd pay a bit more to be able to take it back easier if needed, not that I can.

    The Flip UltraHD has a 'flip port' so you can plug in compatible microphones, etc, which will be handy. Its also has a battery pack where as the mino's is built in. No card slot for extra storage so 8gb will have to do.

    It would be very annoying to watch as well. I just find it amazing that Martin has them on their site.
