I am looking for any SD camcorder (or standalone recorder for that matter...small) that will support a VIDEO IN signal. I cant use a hard drive based or DV based for this application. It needs to record to MP4 and use SDHC memory modules. I have researched Panasonic and Canon and all of them seem to only support video out. Size is also and issue. It will need to fit in the nose of a fighter jet and withstand 6gs during recording. Both the Canon and Panasonic models are the perfect size. Any ideas?

The only product I saw that supported line-in was one of those Aiptek Go HD+, but that was a year ago. I don't know if the current Aipteks kept that feature.

limiting the application to sd cards is a problem.


ffv.com, and others, have portable dvrs that can take video inputs via firewire and usb(?), and record video to solid state hard drives.


i have an old panasonic standard def consumer video camera that recorded to sd cards, but it uses the mpeg2 format... i used it as a recording device on race cars, with an external video camera feeding the video signal to it.

I have an older Canon ZR (85 I think, not handy at the moment) that came with a A/V cable (yellow, red and white, into a mini-headphone type jack on the camera) and it uses the same jack for both video in and video out. The camera senses if there is a signal and sets in/out appropriately, although to record video in you have to use the remote and it is less then an intuitive process.


Unfortunately it does not appear that the new cameras do this.



It looks like the Aiptek Action HD has it: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...66&forum_id=92


It is still listed as a YES on Aiptek's site for the Action-HD - 1080P High Definition Camcorder w/ Optical Zoom http://www.aiptek.com/Merchant2/merc...&Store_Code=AS


But it says it only records at VGA from the A/V in (640x480).
