What you'll need:


  • Camera with Video in (Picture)
  • Connecting cables (Picture)
  • Microphone, Mines just a cheap tie mic that needs a lot of editing. (Picture)
  • Bullet Cam (Picture)
  • Masking Tape and Battery for Microphone (Picture 1) (Picture 2)
  • Audio and Video converters (Picture) First 3 are Audio last two are video. May be different for youre camera.
  • The camera needs a 12v DV power so if you can find a lead straight from your cig lighter youre good to go. If not you need a invertor then a AC to DC transformer. (Picture)

Mounting the Camera

I used Beepcakes M5 for this. This tape will hold up on track use.

Due to competitors I cant say where it was bought from. Power source is 12v so yes and the masking tape is perfect to be honest. Holds upto 150mph ;)


can you say how much then :)...

Thing is I would want it permently mounted, hence masking tape wouldnt do..

That aint bad at all..

I see you plugged it straight into a digital camera. Is it possible to connect it to a usb port or other on a computer?

I dare say anyone who knows how to hold a soldering iron could make up a power cable for it for no more than a couple of quid, 2.1 mm(probably?) power plug on a piece of speaker cable, either put an inline fuseholder on it and fuse it with something like a 250ma fast acting fuse, and connect it to the battery, or connect it to a cigarette lighter plug with inbuilt fuse holder, and use the same fuse as above.


To connect it to a computer, you will need some sort of video capture hardware, you might want to take this point over to general hardware.

Sure a good quality USB web cam some usb extension leads and the cam mounted to the front of the car behind the grill would be a top solution, usb connection to a laptop then record in dv format straight to the HD :)

Think this is how i'm going to try and do things tomorrow :)
