On-Bike Camera from Oregon Scientific

Not surprising, really, that this blog likes any and all equipment designed for taking photos while on a bike.

This 'All Terrain Camera 2000' - or ATC2K for those in the know - is a simple concept. Mount it on your bike and off you go. Or, if you're the type to wear a helmet, mount it up there if you prefer.

Capture video of your ride or any other outdoor activity and either watch it on a TV with the AV-out function or download it to your computer for editing and uploading for all the world to see.

We've seen them online in the UK for £109.99, including a 2GB memory card. There is probably a US site out there somewhere.

If we had one we'd be pedalling around Copenhagen all day long, never getting any work done...

Nerdy specs:
AVI format in three sizes: 640x480, 320x240, 160x120.
Two frame rates - 15fps and 30fps.
AV-out for TV viewing.
Runs on 2 AA batteries.
Multiple mounting design.
USB interface.

Thanks to my lovely sister, who spotted this cool camera and thought of me. :-)
