sj4000 is also what I use. Have to make sure you don't get the clone though.

Ion 1011L Air Pro Lite Wi-Fi Camera amazon for around 40 bucks, you will also need iON Camera 5007 Mount Pack around 11 bucks on amazon.

this is what I have, good mic, people clam it is just as good as the GoPro 3. I will look later at home for the video review I did.

Tried running with a BulletCam that I picked up from TSC. Was great for the first month, now it will not stay on on rides over 15 minutes. It appears vibration is the issue causing the camera to shutoff.

Would not recommend as an alternative.

****UPDATE****

iOn is so far been a great camera, one thing i found out was the Air Pro lite only has an external mic and does not allow for mics to be plugged into it, you can open it up, disconnect the attached mic and attach a inline disconnect or wired mic to it, or you can spend the extra 40 buck and get the Air Pro 2 which supports plug in microphones. i tried to do it the cheap way and ended up buying a new camera because of it.

check the companies website for that product, I know cameras that shut off every 15 mins. One being the XD Replay which was created to work on firearms, but it only stays on for about 10-15 mins.

Contour Roam is AWESOME if you don't need a screen. Like mine a lot.

I picked up a used GoPro Hero3+ black edition off Craigslist for $75. Works perfect. Then just picked up the specific mounts I needed.

You can get used gopro here blacks for around $100 to $150 and they shoot beautiful video. I would go used Gopro.

Agree here. I bought a used 3+ and have had great results. Even here in Canada you can find a number in the $75 range.
