    Looking for a digital camera similar to Kodak's v570 and v705 with its central positioned lens.

    Anyone know where I can a camera with the following qualities?

    1. Non-telescopic
    2. Centrally positioned lens
    3. Wide-angle capability
    4. Image stabilization

    :wiggle:

    Hoping to install my camera into my motorcycle helmet...

    I think if you were installing it into a helmet, having the lens positioned a few inches off center wouldn't really be that big of a deal.

    I own this camera and I'm very happy with it. I have 2 mounts on my helmet and 2 on my bike. I need another camera so I can have 2 points of view when I edit. It's awesome.

    The main problem I have with this camera is that I want a mic pick-up instead of the motorcycle engine and traffic noise. This camera looks promising, however.

    I was thinking that, but not sure until I try it out. Here's a video of how it should work out. Kind of dangerous but good quality videos:
