HV 20 with lipstick cam

Has anyone attached a lipstick cam to the HV 20 for use in extreme sports or undercover situations?

I know it can be done and you'll lose HD, of course, but was wondering if anyone had first hand experience and whether the SD image was acceptable.

I have used it with a helmet cam with 480 lines of resolution (or so the literature says) I'm not real pleased with it compared to the resolution of the HV 20 of course. What's "acceptable" is purely in the eye of the viewer. It's SD after all and just not that great in my opinion. It can work well if you use 2-3 seconds hear and there to augment your video. I use it on board motorcycles for unusual angles like from a fender or strapped to a glove.

Thanks. That's what I had in mind, a few cut aways, not a whole film.
