ON BOARD Video camera

Not sure if this is the right place to post this.
Does anyone have or used a onboard video camera in their cars. Did you just take a normal video camera and mount it to your dash board or other place to do a video from inside your car or is there a special type designed just for in car use .

I guy I know from this area, used zip ties to tie a video camera to the lower front grille of his car, then video taped his 140mph run down the highway. The video is on YouTube, and it is also linked though the multimedia section on ls1gto.com. It's pretty cool.

car camera

Yesterday was a nice fall day in Connecticut so I took my car out for a ride. I tried to use my cell phone which has a camera / video in it. tried to get a video of me doing a 40-80 mph run. When I jumped on the gas my car got a little crooked and I could not hold it still. I will try it again with a passanger holding it.

I have been seriously considering getting a dash cam for my car...
With so many idiots on the road I am in a constant state of paranoid while driving. It would be nice to have proof that they caused any accident (knock on wood).
