16x9 lipstick?

Anyone know of a 16x9 lipstick cam? I am working on an extreme sports project that I want to shoot in hd but need some pov shots via helmetcam.

thanks

bust guess is to use regular cam and add home made anamorphoser.
since these cam are fix focus, no zoom and small diameter , it should be easy to find a lens with a ratio between 1.5 and 2.

I considered something like that but my other problem is matching it to the other cams. I starting to think about mounting an HC1 but that's a lot of extra weight on someone's head.

there is no problem matching pictures.
at editing you just resize for correct aspect ration, should work great.
The important thing is to get the full res of the cam in wide format.
for most lipstick cam you get only composite signal, except for few models allowing firewire (that i recommend).
you can record with a cheap DV cam with DV in.

I do have the SD setup with lipstick already. However, I am not familiar with any that offer a f/w output. Do you mind pointing them out?

thx
