Hi

Can anyone tell which camera I should use to create a video tap for my Super 8 Nizo. I think I need a camera that pinhole/bullet camera that can focus .

try www.qvcvideo.com and check out their helmet cam.
Not sure the lens that you'll need though, probably an 8mm but not 100%. lenses are cheap though so just buy a few and use the one you need.

i guess it depends a lot on what kind of damage you're keen to inflict in your camera. If you wanna keep the viewfinder functional to the eye, u will need a cam with lens and macro. But, if you are willing to remove the lenses from the original viewfinder, you can try to have the image projected straight to the ccd, then u could use something like a board camera:

Maybe you should take a look at the "zigview" S2. http://www.zigview.co.uk/

You put the sensor on the view finder and you get a LCD video assist instead of it, That's pretty nice! I want one but it's quite expensive.
