Camera System

I am trying to devise a system of say four cameras that feed in via a selector switch into a recording device such as a DV recorder or similar.

I guess the first item on the shopping list is a small waterproof camera.

I have ordered one of these to try out from ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=200121338624

Then I was thinking one of these to record from the cameras?

http://cgi.ebay.com/Mustek-PVR-H140-...QQcmdZViewItem

Then the only thing needed is a way of switching between cameras?

Any of you photography buffs out there know if this will work? I am not expecting broadcast quality but will it work?

Chris

have a look here and talk to these guys. they seem really helpful...

they have a multi camera system on the site...

I'm keen to get a bullet cam fitted to mine, but it's always been the recorder that seems to be the expensive/temperamental part

Whatever you do don't get a hard drive recording device if you intend to go out in rough weather - get one that takes SD cards or similar - hard drives will not last!

They have them on Amazon for about 80!

What about cameras that take DV tapes, the DogCam guys suggest that using video cameras that take DV Tapes are the best way to record from their cameras?

Only if it's hand held - as soon as you strap something down a tape or hard drive will not live for long!

SO if you made up case with plenty of padding to hold the camera in would that work Cookee?
