I've just got a new camera. I may offer my services if someone wants a few pics taken of their bike. I don't do weddings BTW.

Just bought a Garmin virb elite wifi £160 from Tesco Direct comes with great software to edit  :thumb

If you don't want the GPS / wifi function there's one for around £100

I bought a Mobius 1080P HD Mini Sports Camera the other week, including the handlebar mount and an upgraded battery, total was around £57.
It's deffinately a brilliant piece of kit and you can download the software to set up the various parameters, save them and download them to the camera.
As i use a Mac Pro for my work (audio and video editing), i either use imovie or Final cut to edit the footage.
The camera's can be very handy in the case of an accident that wasn't your fault, in fact i read that some haulage companies are insisting on having them in their cabs, in case of such a situation.

I rock a contour roam 3. Brilliant. Used it recently to record a 1000 mile ride around the south of England I did with my dad and his mate.

Top stuff and the non removable battery, not as much of a big deal. Charged it every time we stopped using my portable power pack, recorded the full days riding (5 hours approx) with no trouble.

I have a Sony Handycam recorder that gets very little use. It would be simple to mount it to the bike (in dry weather) but it switches on when you flip open the fold-out screen and closes when it shuts. Anyone know if you can get them to work with the screen closed ?

No viewfinder just the screen.

Anyone tried one of these and if so what do you think of it ?





They are available in Asda at £99 and seem to have a good range of fittings included.

There's a short sample video on the following page.

Looks like it makes quality videos. Easy controls. Excellent light change adaptability. Vast array of mounting options.
Good price.
The only downside I can see is when used on the move.
The video becomes so blurry due to vibration that it's practically unwatchable.
Numberplates can't be read.
So helmet mounted, with the body acting as a self made shock absorber, is probably the only way to go.
