Bike Mounted Camera for Time Lapse Stills

I'd like to mount a camera on the bike and have it take a still photo every minute or two to help capture an all day ride on hard surfaces - does not need to be single track rugged.

Must haves:
- waterproof
- time lapse with intervals of up to 1 min
- batteries that will support 8 hours of time lapse or hard wired power
- storage for 8 hours worth of photos
- ability to mount on bike (ram mount on bars?)

Nice to haves:
- ability to also take on-demand photos easily while riding
- gps tagged photos
- ability to see photos on smartphone and/or gps
- time lapse intervals of up to 5 mins
- low cost ;)

I don't need video as I am one of those people who get a little motion sick when watching hand held videos. So a p&s like a Lumix would do, but if a GP (etc) would make more sense I'd go that route.

I've done some research on this but I'm sure I have only scratched the surface...

Suggestions?

Check the Garmin VIRB Elite. There's a link in my sig to the thread on this site.

Yes, that's on the list.

Here's an example of a time lapse video at 2 second interval, then slowed down through Garmin Virb Edit:

It will also take pictures at interval, but this video method saves a lot of hard drive space and processing time, compared to photo interval.
