#ILUGNY recently participated in the Lyndhurst LEGO Fun Days in Tarrytown NY. After being inspired by @DaveE123 and @andyscouse and the rest of #NELUG, I decided to do some on-train filming of my own:
All the youtube footage was captured with the 808 #11 HD Keychain Camera (rcgroups.com) . You'll also notice in one of the movies that we had live video being broadcast onto the TV in the room. That was done with this "Security Camera" (Amazon.com). All in all, it was fairly successful. I'm currently shopping around for a replacement for the live camera - the quality was fairly poor, the range was limited, the battery life was terrible, and the field of view was not that great. The keychain camera was awesome, and I'm going to be ordering a few more of those. I'd even like to integrate them into a permanent LEGO based enclosure somehow.
I hope you all enjoyed the footage, and I would strongly encourage anyone who does 9v, RC trains or monorail to pick up one of those 808 #11 keychain cams...

I'd like to modify mine to fit inside a smaller, brick-built housing, but that's fairly low on the priority list.
@CCC - Yeah, it's a bit like a slow motion roller coaster.
@caperberry - we had clearance issues on all sides of the trains - an iPhone would have crashed into many, many objects.
I'm still looking for a good solution for "live" broadcasting.
go to 1:27 for the gopro scene.
Easy yo use and lightweight.
