Hi all after several road rage incidents I have decided to fork out for a helmet cam but am a bit tight for money. Could someone recommend a reasonably priced budget camera around the £40 mark? Thanks in advance.

    No idea, but I would be interested in this as I do not want to fork out £200 on a camera...

    Not the best is it- OK for a daily commute I guess...

    You can buy an additional battery pack for longer run time.
    £ for £ I don't know of a better cam.
  • As said above, ideal for communting but for leisure use your just gonna look a saddo
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    If you had SEVERAL road rage accidents, you should probably ALSO start questioning what YOU are doing wrong...
    I commute daily in London and other than the occasional angry motorist screaming something from the window, which I never pay attention to, I never had an accident worth filming

    Where I live we have a hard to understand one way system which often leads cars to mistakenly drive into the face of oncoming traffic. When I and others try and flag them down we are often met with hostility, I do not know why. North Cornwall seems to bring out the worst in drivers at times.

    If you're looking for a commuting camera, the Commuting forum on here might be a better bet :wink:

    Be aware, though, as above, that opinions are varied on cameras and their place on commutes - I, for one, never bother because it's just not worth it. I'd rather focus on avoiding problems.
