I just got that one for Xmas and love it so far!!!! still learning how to use it and set the lens right so you get the best sight line while riding.

That is a unique helmet cam.. I like it.

I got one from onBoard.tv and they are great, very compact -- probably even more so than that one.

I'm curious to read a report (set-up, battery duration, is a 2Gig card limiting, etc...) and see some first hand videos filmed with this camera as I am planning to buy it.
Thanks.

That looks like a very nice camera, Just a little dissapointing that for that price, It only comes with 1gig of storage. I think I owuld personally rather a regular digital recorder, with a Lipstick style helmet cam attachment. But I do want to see some footage from someone here who has one before I decide for sure what I want to get

It comes with a 1gig memory card but you can use a 2gig if you wish. However the firmware currently limits it to 2gig memory cards (for reasons I am not aware of). Still, the firmware can be upgraded so when it's possible to use more than 2gig you can use a greater capacity card after the upgrade. That's really nice IMO. I don't know if there'll be a cost for the firmware upgrade.

According to the link I posted with 2gig you can record up to 1h26min using the highest resolution available. Pretty good.

Meh.

The footage I've seen from those things still sucks.


Either there's no shutter speed adjustment or or the processor can't handle fast motion too well.

Even the propaganda footage on their website looks weak.

We ran into this problem with our camera. We were told we could get upgrades and use a 4GB card and that's simply not the case so we have an expensive card that is useless to us and since we opened the package, can't be returned!
