I've got a digital video camera (3 CCD, no less) and all the digital video software I need.

I've practiced my 1/4 mile runs and can consistently run in the mid 12's, at around 113-115. I've practiced 0-60 runs and can do them in 4.5-4.9 pretty consistently. 60-0 times depend more on road surface and temperature.

Now I'd like to video tape some of this stuff and maked it available to this forum. So I'm looking for some advice.

I've tried duct taping my camera to the dash, and you get a pretty good view out the dash, but you can't see the driver or shifting at all. What kind of view would you most like to see for this sort of thing?

Should I try mounting the camera just behind the seats so you can see the driver? If so, I'll need to drill something I think (or maybe enough duct tape might work). You could also see my G-Tech in action, which might be pretty cool.

I also want to video tape some runs on some mountain passes.

Any advice on angles, camera techniques, the frame size I mix it down to, stereo vs. mono sound, frame rate, etc?

Any tips (moderators please!) on how to make this stuff available to Z06vette forum members?

You could get one of those chassis stiffeners with the camera mount if you're going to be shooting alot of video...

Frank,
ditto on the quote. Saw runs like you suggest w/sound and autometer shift light, Its cool to see it blink at 6500 rpm...

Try turning the "steady shot" on and off... I have found that sometimes the stedy shot will "overcorrect" it is made for your hand, not a small bump in the road @ 100 MPH /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Buy a mic on a cord, plug it in and tape it inside the trunk... it will cut back the wind noise (if your window is down) and give you a REALLY deep, great sound...

you can also take the cord, and stick it inside your helmet, to talk when you are driving... not so great for drag racing, but I do it all the time for roadracing... calling out speed, gear, when and what gear I shift into... its also good practice to talk through a good roadcourse...
