    Helmet-mounted cameras are fairly common, and not (quite) as expensive as you might think.

    you need a camcorder with a/v in and preferably a lanc socket which lets you control the camera with a microswitch plugged in and a bullet camera,the picture quality can be amazing,will cost you around 500 english pounds to set up

    You can get pretty elaborate and spend quite a bit of money in the process. It really depends on what you want to accomplish.

    If you're making something suitable for your web site - here's mine, with a video of today's ride - then all you need is your digital camera.

    If you want to make something DVD quality then you're going to need to spend considerably more for higher end gear.
