Mounting camera on the headstock

I'm looking for something that helps me mount my camera on my guitar headstock for some close-up fretboard recording
Here's a video for ref.

Even better if there is a camera made just for this. I'd hate to have a heavy one attached on one end.

You could use a webcam, or a small digital camera, and attach it with tape or several velcro straps.

I've seen a camera which has a separate lens (well, not just the lens, the optical receiver part) that you can connect. Maybe he used one of those.

I've used my webcam before ()
The framerates of a webcam isn't good enough. It has to be a digital camera which is heavier so I will need something better than my capo to hold it steady there.

Look at this video which I pretty sure was recorded by a digital camera (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44h5PkMnVs0). It's so much better!

Dude, it looks awesome with a webcam.

I was expecting something fuzzy at 2 frames per second, but it's really good. Plus the black and white looks cool.
