    My roommate and I had an idea about recording road trips with a camera/cameras that are running outside the car.

    I was curious if anyone knew what kinda of video camera and or hardware would create the clearest video while being held stationary on a moving car. If its possible that is.

    Thing about video camera and vacation, you end up experiencing the whole thing through the view finder. Why not get a nice dSLR and take pictures instead?

    The camera's only a fraction of the cost, you've also got to figure out what your going to cut the result with. Do you have an edit rig and software? If so what is it? This will also determine if HD is even feasible. Whats your camera and mounting hardware budget?

    We were looking into mounting the camera/s to the top of the car to record the views of the trip as it happens so that not so much of an issue.

    This is very early planning stages so everything is up in the air. I was just kinda looking to get an idea of what would or wouldn't be possible and at what cost.
