    Motion detect auto record cameras:

    Let me know if that will work for you - if not I have other links.

    Thanks Kringe for replying.
    I meant a handheld battery-powered cassette or HD camcorder.

    In order for a camera to take advantage of motion detection it would have
    to be on a tripod or remain motionless itself. You could not use it hand
    held. I use camcorders in motion detection but the signal is relayed to my
    PC which has the detection card installed. If you have a particular project
    in mind I might be able to help you but the answer to your post would be
    '"None that I know of".

    Thanks John for the help.

    I attach a modulator to send the wireless signal to the video input but you
    might be better off with a surveillance solution.

    The Panasonic PV-L354 has this capability as do several of their other VHS-C
    models. I believe the Canon XL2 does as well.

    I have a Panasonic PV-D506, (VHS-C) that has this feature. Actually it
    works pretty good.

    Thanks John for your suggestion.
    It's enough to record to a tape for me. How much does the modulator
    cost?
    How much does the cheapest color surveillance camera cost?

    Are there any better than VHS quality camcorders with this feature?

    I have had this modulator for around 15 years or so. Useful device that can
    be under $100 I would imagine. There are cheap surveillance systems that
    start around the same. You can combine some hardware with others. I have a
    DVR card that was less than $100 that you can input several cameras and use
    camcorders or any input wireless or not. Depends on your needs and if you
    will have similar projects.

    I am not sure about the quality of the VHS-C format but I purchased several
    HI-8 used camcorders at a pawn shop for around $25.00 that seem to work
    perfectly.

    Good Luck

    anyways, for the pc, look into any webcam + Supervision Cam software...
    it'll do the trick =)

    Thanks for the Supervision Cam software!
    I need a battery powered tape digital camcorder with the feature.
