You may be interested in the camera that I used to take the video that is in this newsletter.  It is a new (to me) camera that can be had from Amazon and other sellers for around $100.00.  I got mine from Banggood.

The camera is very small measuring about 1.5" x 1.5" x 1.5".  It has a built-in battery and saves video to a micro SD card.

Note that it does not come with a mount.  I just put a small goop of adhesive (Glue Dots) on the bottom and stuck it to a locomotive for the video.  I have also glued Velcro to the bottom and used that to hold it to my bike helmet - here is a sample video taken from the bike:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQ3QSpyzsEE&t=383s

It has no display, has only one button and tells you its operation status with a single LED so it takes a bit of getting used to.  On the other hand the video is very good!
