Gopro seem to be the camera favoured by the TRF lads in Devon.

I, personally, think they are the bee's knees, but tend to be pricey. cry

A couple of weeks ago I plumped for one of these

MUVI HD NPNG

mg4756-1.jpg

It is cheaper than a Gopro and comes with an 8gb micro sd card, waterproof case, mounts for helmet, handlebars, belt, snowboard, surfboard and more. biggrin

Very easy to use and can take 4hrs of continual use on one charge of its battery.  wink

Can take photos and video at different sizes, and can be used as a sound recorder too.

It can be operated by its own remote controller and can be shouted at to start and stop. (Unlike the wifefurious

I'm using a Drift HD. There is also the Ghost which is a tad smaller and I believe has better battery life. It clips nicely onto the side of the helmet and has a smaller front profile than the GoPro. I've experimented with bike mounting using a RAM mount but I'm not happy with it so I'm making my own mounting bracket.

These videos were taken on it. However, putting them onto Vimeo reduces the resolution quite a bit.

I have 3 gopro's the 170 hero, HD hero & hero 3, never had any issues, the mounts are good & I also use a RAM mount on the bars, this allows me to adjust the cam where ever I like.

I have the wireless backpack on the HD, my remote will work with both the HD & hero 3...turns both on at the same time.

Never had them come loose or get water in them & I have taken the HD under water

Anyhow if you want to see what they can do check out my youtube channel or previous posts on this forum  (search for Kaneterry on youtube)

 

Cheers Terry

I have the Contour+ with a 32GB SD card and a waterproof case mounted to my helmet and am very happy with the quality and ease of use. I thought about the Go Pro's but do not like the shape of them, they look silly IMO. smile

It has a GPS with speed, distance, elevation etc. and a Bluetooth function that connects to my phone. This is very useful for changing settings or checking the angle that the camera is pointing. It also connects to any HD television and can be used as a security camera that either records or surveys, or you can preview the movies/pictures saved on the SD card. I like the fact that it is compact and easy to mount which leaves quite a few options for mounting hardware.

Here is a vid, bear in mind the quality degrades significantly when uploaded to YouTube-

Enjoy!

I have bought a battery backpack & LCD for the Gopro 3 both a huge improvement, increasing the battery life & the LCD allowing a preview & making the setup much easier.

Pity these are not standard, anyhow I shot this video at 1080

 

Cheers Terry
