I didn't even think about buying a camera mount, and made one utilizing an old tripod top with a 2 way swivel head that I found in a skip. It took hardly any time to make and is fitted on the roll bar with a couple of exhaust clamps.

I use my camera and mount in two different cars so an easy removable one suited me better than a home made job.

Moosehead should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I use a Sony MiniDV which works great. Only when hitting very high rumble strips do I get any vibration problems. Home made mount onto roll cage, no problems with scrutes. Positioned just right to get the mirror in so you can see anyone behind. Only problem is downloading to PC takes ages so now I just plug the camera into a DVD recorder and just copy straight to disc.

Hi Wayne, have you got a firewire card in your PC and a port on the camcorder because it will download quicker than via usb.

Funnily enough I picked up a firewire lead at the weekend but haven't got round to trying it yet.

As Al said you also want a firewire "card" in the computer. Maybe your lead came with one ? Also you will want a fair bit of space on whatever drive you send it to depending on length . I stick mine on a 500 gig external.

If it's a miniDV camera, then surely it'll be recorded onto tape and will need to be recorded into PC in the same way as it records onto a DVD recorder...

So in that case, I'd recommend getting hold of Adobe Premiere Elements because you can record directly into it with your camera, it's not too difficult to use and it's only about £50 and will allow you to burn it straight to a DVD which will play in any DVD player.

You still need the mans to get it into the puter and firewire is fastest or at least thats what I have found, same when I am printing to large format machines firewire will work much faster than USB.

Only reason I want to get it onto PC is so I can do a bit of editing. Quite content to just record straight to DVD at the moment

If you buy the LG Hard drive machine I spoke about earlier Wayne (or similar) you can edit from that at least basic stuff, you can also put titles in there from the machine as well. What you do is save it to the hard drive and dub to the dvd from there but only the bits and chapters that you want.

Al, it doesn't matter which is faster, USB or Firewire, because if it's a tape-mechanism like MiniDV, then the transfer to PC will only go as fast as the tape will play, which is usually 1x speed - i.e. 30 minutes of footage will take 30 minutes to transfer to PC.

You can at least aim the 5k easily with the built in screen.

On an open wheeler it'll cause a lot of drag, and the microphone will only pick up wind noise above 10mph. But in a closed cockpit car (with the camera inside) it'll probably be fine.
