The camera is a cheap MD80 spy camera clone that I got off DealExtreme for $16.47 -- actually they gave me two, so the unit price of these would be $8.24 in my case. Hats can be had for free, I won mine at school. And the rubber band can be had from anywhere. I cut it, slipped it in the cap holes, tied a knot, and then secured the camera holder to the hat by looping the band around it. Nothing special. :)

Video quality is not very good but it does get the job done in good lighting. In bad lighting, though... (Click on it, Photobucket link!).

In any case, this thing is tons of fun and once I adjust it properly I should be able to use it as a head cam for recording my Mini-Z at the track. I might flip the camera holder upside down so that the camera is more in line with my eye level. I just hope I myself don't get caught on camera wearing this thing!
