You don't need much of a camcorder if all you plan to do is use it with your helmet camera.

The camcorder simply acts as a recording VCR for the helmet camera that you are attaching. All the upper end features such as quality lens, image stabilization, a kazillion lines of resolution, etc, don't enter the picture.

If your helmet camera is a 380 line unit, then that is all you'll get in picture quality, even if your camcorder is a 525 line unit.

Here is a link to a thread on the Horizons Unlimited forum that I started.

I've done a bit of on-bike video recording on previous tours. Makes for great memories.
All the best,
