Pete got MAKE 07 and used the article to build is own $50 mountain bike video camera, he writes – “The article explained how to convert a $30 “one time use” digital video camera into a reusable camcorder for less and a couple of bucks in parts. WOW! That’s cool. I already own a couple of video cameras but they are relegated to boring tasks like taping my kid’s birthday parties.

Shooting and Mountain Biking are my favorite hobbies so I combined them to make a $50 Mountain Bike Video Camera. Following is a diary of how I did it. “ – Link.
