I would be using a wireless lavalier microphone and manual audio gain for recording me on camera.

Recording all sorts of little shots in the interior gets a little trickier, and the little cameras that work well for that don't have manual audio, or even microphone inputs, but I could edit together video from little car-mounted cameras with audio from the fancy camera.

Might be cool to do a "ride-along" clip with a camera on the car pointed forward, one on me talking, one on the speedometer, one on the ammeter, one on the stick-shift. The edited video would show what I do while driving, how to shift when, how fast I am going and how much power is used. (I would have to borrow a few more cameras!

My car doesn't have a Tach!
