  • Good cycling camera

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Pros:
    * Cheap!
    * Comes with bike and helmet mount
    * Good video quality
    * Easy to operate and access files through microSD or by plugging into the computer with miniUSB port
    * Can be used as a webcam by plugging into the computer without an SD card inserted (has two USB modes)
    * Is charged by USB when not turned on

    Cons:

    Cons:
    * Mount is flimsy - does not provide a rock solid base for the camera and as such pushes extra shake into the feed (handlebar mount in particular) although you can take it apart and tighten it up
    * Sound doesn't work on my unit (I don't really need sound anyway so am not going to send it back under warranty)

    OtherThoughts:

    Overall pretty happy with it. It is possible to strap to your helmet without the mount system and I will try that further to get a solid base.

    additionally, the bottom dashboard of the videos was done with Excel 2003, Virtualdub and superimposed with Adobe Elements.

    Bottomline:

    overall, pretty happy with it - works well, is small and works with my 16GB microSD card.
