It does take up quite a bit of space, the next clip was at high quality, but i had to convert it to a different format to put it on youtube, which has unfortunately made the quality look poor, but i can assure you it is pretty sharpe:
Thanks, I saw those and I like them and what you did with yours is pretty good and I like the quality. However I have a Nano-ITX which dose not have firewire so one like this but with USB or anything but firewire would kick ***, as long as its not firewire.
i think this is a very cool idea, but there are a few things that aren't obvious to me, i.e. what happens to the camera's aim when you adjust the mirror? Is the change noticable or does it make little difference? Again... if it's used for track purposes, i can't imagine you're paying much attention to what's behind you... but it kind of limits the greater utility of having a camera in your car.
Also, with the dimming lever gone, is there an auto-dimming replacement you put in there or is it just going to be bright as day when someone pulls behind you with their high beams on? If this isn't to be used at night then i suppose that is a moot point... but i wonder if there's another way to accomplish the same thing without that drawback.
