I'm out the door, but feel compelled to respond.
A few years back, about 1999 we used to do the bungie cord setup. Now everyone has the digital setups with cameras that do all sorts of things I don't understand except that the sellers say "steady shots at 200 mph." Good enough for me.
I still have the old camcorder I used to use. $1200 setup now worth about $10 on eBay.
As with the Pearl compared to old cell phones, that camera looks like the size of a house. Could only do 167 mph with that brick on my R1.
By the way, even digital cameras do a good job for most movies on a bike, below 80 anyway.
Look at that Vespa movie again. The original is very good [meaning the Pearl conversion is crap]. I shot that with a Minolta Dimage XT digital camera straped to my chest and held in place with velcro.
