Can anyone, like jeremyrundle for example, be kind enough to recommend me a good set up.

    I think you need to be more specific in your post to get an adequate reply. Are you talking about cameras and mounts or resolutions for light conditions?

  • Someone posted on this forum a link to a US site with an ultra-cheap and small HD camera that looked good, but my search-fu is weak and I can't find it. If anyone remembers it (the site was the name of the company/camera, and had a sample video taken from a UK motorcyclist) please repost, thanks!
  • Hi.

    ^^ That's what I use, but you can find them on eBay for about £7. Low light quality is poor though.

    Then again it is on most unless you pay £100 plus, however if you are into video editing which I have been for a V E R Y long time, simply place it in Pinnacle studeo (I use 12) and increase brightness/contrast before burning a dvd.

    I have happily recorded when riding through towns lit, and with good bike lights edited you can make out enough detail should you need evidence.

    I do it for a living, well I say I do it for a living, my job title is "Video Editor" but that also includes any number of random menial administration tasks that go with it.... [/rant] anyway, I don't think the problem is really with the brightness of the image, but rather the shutter speed when it clicks into the 15fps low light setting - it just blurs everything.
