That looks good Oxford. Well worth considering for a rear camera for sure. The camera you are using do you know what format it outputs in? Just wondering if iMovie will handle it okay.
Sorry Andrew forgot to answer your post, the format of the Camshots is .AVI, which most editors seem to handle without issue.

In my experience the Otek isn't great but with close shaves and helmet-mounted Ayups I usually can light up the rego plate, etc. Night time and raining is appalling though (for the camera and the rider).

Yes, I bought them for that reason, just wanted them to be rain proof, but waterproof is better, except that the microphone does not pick up much low level noise. So if you talk to it, unfortunately it may not pick up what you say.

Same here. Pretty much convinced now.
