Default Helmet Cameras

I purchased a helmet camera last weekend. Its an Oregon Scientific ATC 3K. They said that is water proof and mud proof. I was wondering if someone has ever used one of these? I'm planning on using it on my Jeep for trail runs and races. I have yet to use it but am planning on trying it at the next race.

The linked camera appears to record 1gb per 30minutes. If possible run an 8gb memory. This should give you roughly 4hrs. Most devices have a maximum limit of memory recognized.

We've been using an el-cheapo Tony Hawk helmet cam at the races. Works pretty good. Let me know how the Oregon Scientific ATC 3K works, we may consider an upgrade.

The one I got only costs $100. I'm excited to see how it works.
