In car video camera recommendations

Did a search on this and didn't find much info.

I've got a Canon Z80 DVR camera and would like to do some in-car recordings--especially at DE's. I'm thinking a helmet cam of some sort would make most sense from a mounting standpoint but am open to suggestions

Would appreciate any recommendations for a modestly priced camera to work with my Z80.

thanks in advance.

I have had good luck with mounting my mini-DV cam to the roll bar with one of these:


Also a good idea to get a wide angle lens. A helmet cam might make for some shakey "sea-sick" footage.

The other cool thing to do is to put a separate microphone in the storage compartment behind the roll bar wrapped in foam or a towel. It gets the sound of the engine without all the wind noise especially if the top is down.
