:+1 On the 'Contour' range. The shape allows you to tuck the camera in closer to your helmet than the 'gopro' shaped devices, and also if on the side they are perhaps a little less prone to getting smacked by low hanging branches. Some deals on the Contour include the waterproof housing if that matters. Mine has the mini GPS card that lets you track your ride.A point that matters with ALL the HD cameras though, is make sure the video capabilities of your PC are up to displaying them. For ages I was convinced I had a dodgy camera, with pausing and skipping, but it was only the speed opf the PC not keeping up with the demands of HD playback that was causing the problem. A decent video card resolved that.
I don't understand why people keep churning out these videos. Several minutes of what a person on a road, whether on a bike or in a car, sees in front of him or her is a pretty good definition of pointless.Nobody who makes serious motorcycle videos uses this kind of footage more than a few seconds at a time, and for good reason. It puts people to sleep.P.S. I'm talking about road footage, not dirt bike race footage, etc., which is a different issue.
Redge, Some may think your comments harsh but not I. I am not a professional videographer nor do I have the time or software to edit and produce a film quality video. Most of what gets posted on 'tube is boring simply because it is a snapshot of one person's day. When I watch my video, I re-live the moment. My pulse quickens, smells are remembered, conversations and stories cherished by me alone. No video made by any one can do all of that for me.Much like having to watch those old 8mm vacation films at family gatherings. Outside of the occasional "Hey Ya'll, watch this.." stunt, I suspect most footage should be left in the cutting room. Makes me appreciate a good film even more.I also regard more than a few motorcycles as butt ugly although they may perform better than anything in my garage. I like redhead women and Guzzi bikes, others do not. Raw and uncut is exactly what life is and all of us only get one lap. Cheers, Friend
Vibration is my demon. The rear facing lens on the VIO system is mounted to the underside of the HB rack and is the most steady vids made on the V11. The front lens has been difficult. Fork and handlebar positions are not optimum. Yesterday, I installed the gas cap mount from the Benelli. A RAM camera base plate on that, RAM short arm and another base plate for the lens. Idle vibration is still there but smooth everywhere else. The height above the tank is about 5 inches with my hands in the lower corners at 1080.
I went with GoPro a few years ago as I am a cretin, when I had a VCR, it always flashed 12:00 as I could not set the time :'( The GoPro works easily enough for an old fart, I like technology, but I would have to adopt a 10 year old kid to teach me how it works.....
I may have the vibration gremlin on the ropes. Kapsco Moto sold me the tank mount and on the Benelli all was golden. The V11 however was not. Using some flat washers and O rings to isolate the mount at the filler and another set to isolate the bolts, the rolling shutter effect has mostly disappeared. Even the at idle shimmy is gone. I took a short ride at sunset to test. Give me a few and I'll post on tube. Warning, this is only a test. Had this been a real......Update-the image is 1000% more stable. There is always a solution-finding it can be a pill. Wander over to the Kapscomoto site for a look at the tank mount.
I looked at the tank mount on Amazon after I got the GoPro but after testing all the mounts I have for it including the suction cup, I decided I liked the helmet mount the most. The suction cup mount worked okay on the Bassa tank but I didn't like the perspective. Probably the only way to eliminate vibration is to isolate the camera from the bike but glad the Kapscomoto is working out for ya.Ehen I use this helmet, I'll have to figure something else out, don't wanna mess up the leather with a stick on mount ;D
If anyone comes across a good deal on these cams for the Christmas season, please post.I'm in the market.I's like to see more comparisons of video quality.
