Hi All,

  • Hey, I have not used any or seen the results of any, I am guessing you don't want a Contour HD helmet camera then? These are very good and very well supported, great results from them.

    I often wish I rode with a camera to collect evidence of all the insane drivers out there, I can't go more then a few yards without being cut up and overtaken and turned left in front of. Seriously fed up.

    Cheers

    Don't buy on the high street. You can pick them up on Ebay for £20, add a Class 6 2Gb card for around £5 and you're away. Just remember the lens is 1/2 - 3/4" above your eyeline.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    ive seen these i was just worried the quality would be pants. whats a class 6 card and will 2gb be big enough?

    why are you saying about the lense distance from eyeline?

    cheers

    Be lucky if they stay on over the bumpy bits.

    Nice chunky shiny slippery plastic in that link. As I said, be lucky if they stay on over the bumpy bits.

    Class 6 is the speed which the card records data, there are Class 8 & 10s about but too dear for this application, 4Gb can also be found but 2Gb can be bought dirt cheap.
    Lower class cards will give a wobbly picture. The camera is in the nosebridge so in effect at the top of the glasses.
