sony pc1000 works great and have superb quality for video taking.
a lot of HD are now going down in price so you may find a good deal on a digital one from sony or canon

Alternatives to video cameras

I'm looking at these two cameras that shoot video.

Panasonic DMC GH2HK
Panasonic DMC TS3

The DSLR is for the artistic shots and the Point n Shoot is for the candid shots. I'm a professional videographer, but like the compact form factor of these cameras. I'm going to experiment using an ipod nano for recording remote audio.

I really like cheap point and shoot cameras for these purposes. If they break, just by another but they generally don't. The batteries last forever and the results are surprisingly good now.

On the other end of the scale is the GoPro. This is a tiny HD camera which can be suction mounted to you, the bike, anywhere. There are loads of options for angles on the go as well as stationary and I have seen videos of them falling from planes at thousands of feet and working fine when they hit the floor. Also, 100% waterproof. Not cheap, but my god they're good.
