Bike Mount for Std Digital Camera

Hi there,

Does anyone manufacture a mount to fix my panasonic digital camera to my bike handle bars or fuel tank fixing bolts?

Or how much do those digital bullet style camera/videos and a mount for one of those cost?

Ideally i'd like one which can take stills as well as video, and is wireless/battery powered and uses an SD card.

Oh i ride an Aprilia Shiver so it would need to be a generic one as theres nothing specific made for them yet!!

Cheers
Ian

I got a little plastic folding tripod that had a velcro strap attachment which you could mount to handlebars/mirrors etc. Bought it in jessops for a few quid. Can't remember the brand I'm afraid.
