I have also jumped on the 2 cam set up

using the piciture-in-picicture box as well(branded by Chasecam)

i record into DV or microMV cam that is mounted secure on the typical rollbar mount u would use in a traditional in-car single camera

works very well so far




very wide angle, almost fisheye lipstick lens, front cam gets full view of driver, road ahead and front steering angle

another option for if you want to hardmount somewhere and have a separate monitor available for checking the cams.

http://www.neurosaudio.com/store/prod_recorder.asp

30fps mpeg4 352x240 (TV res)
sd or cf
user selectable quality

use one for each source. put a multi pole relay somewhere inline w/ each of the video feeds. use the relay to switch off the video signals (not power to the cameras) for a second or two all at once, instant blank reference point in all the videos for syncing later.

The Mustek PMC looks pretty pimp, looks small enough to fit in the trunk of my RR. I wonder what else has better res for similar price

That's the recorder I used to use. It generated the image at the top of the thread.

It's terrible for four reasons: It has no monitor, so it's a pain to check if your camera is working or is positioned correctly. It doesn't even have a 'recording' light, so you need to attach a monitor just to see if you're taping. It can only be operated by a remote control, which you have to find a place for in your race car. And finally, it has no battery, so if you turn the car off without re-connecting the monitor to confirm that you've turned off the recorder, you lose everything you've taped. Worse still, it loses the recording if you crash and the power is interrputed, so its 'black box' value is nil.

If anyone wants one, I'll sell mine cheap.

Anyone have experience with the Audiovox PVR1000? I just bought a new one off eBay for $60. For that price, I thought it was worth trying.

Has anyone come up with an 12v DC power supply for the cameras that runs off the vehicle's electrical system? If so, how'd you do it?

Simple: 12V to 120V inverter, plug the camcorder's power supply into that.
