This is true, it's small but the design makes it quite bulky.

Bullet cameras are by far the best for motor sports, but the video quality of the GoPro is pretty darn good.

I guess it comes down to preference.

BTW I have a GoPro HD, a Standard Contour, a Standard MotoComm and an Oregon Scientific ATC.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses.



These are my video cameras:

what I really want to do is take it apart and install the camera into my helmet or something

Leave a little wire hanging out which I connect the recorder to but all seem to bulk to put inside the helmet

yeah I was looking into them but there are no HD spy cameras. Not to mention, I doubt the video quality would be very good.
