I purchased mine through Helmetcamera.com . Decent camera and great mounting system, but you do have to take care of the area where the wire enters the camera. Mine freyed.
There are other systems coming out that do not require a video camera. They have a small lcd screen built right into the storage device and record to a replaceable memory card system. Be prepared to spend 500 to 1,200.00 for those. That cost however may be justified by not having to carry extra AA batteries for the camera's power or lugging around a camcorder. Plus, you can instantly review and edit your footage right on your riding grounds.

Oregon Scientific makes one that runs around $ 100.00 and uses up to a 2 gig card. Buy the camera on line and go to Costco to get the cars as they are half the price.
I own a Sony that goes to my Canon via a wire and it does a great job but is a hassel with the wires from the cam to camera set up. I might pick up one of the above mentioned to play with this year.
Here is a guy on E Bay selling 30 of them new in box for under a hundred including shipping.
Go to the bottom of this auction as he has Video's posted on You tube to show the quality....
Hope that helps .....

The latest and greatest in helmet camera technology. All in one unit. Saw this on another site, but thought it was worth mentioning.

I've seen the bullit camera. I really think that all I need is a replacement cam. The rest of the gear is still ok with my system.

I have the cam from Helmet cam as well. Me likey
Howler, I took the wire coming out of the camera and looped it back up to the barrel of the cam and taped it to the barrel with electrical tape. I haven't had any problems with wires since doing that.
