A little late for product research is it not? CPD ? (Compulsive Purchase Disorder) I'm also in the market for a camera but I found this one a little to big to use when racing.I just purchased a Go Pro HD 1080p helmet camera. Has anybody used one or has one? Is it "hot" or "not"?
Nice vids, I put some laps in up there.I have one and it is great. I have used it to record trackdays on the motorcycle.
These type of cameras are a bit sensitive to vibration due to how they collect the data from the sensor. The 60fps mode greatly reduces this effect that shows up as a "wavy" picture.
A couple of my videos:
Maybe it has something to do with my torso, I'm not very tall you see. I've seen other people on the Net have the same problems. They're solution was to mount the camera upside down, or mount it properly but put a wedge underneath the chest strap plate.I didn't have the problems rommelgc mentions with the chest strap.
That'll be a Drift HD170. Cute.Wow this thing
Did you have the camera mounted the right way up? You can get a better angle if you mount it upside-down and then use the camera's upside down function to flip the video capture around. (Might require a firmware update, depending on when/where you bought it.)Sorry about that, Mike, I assume you know a good chiropractor around here. I"ll experiment with the helmet mount next time.
