Helmet Cam out with BBT

My first trip out on a Sunday with my handlebar mounted video camera. Having had problems with the camera it went back twice to the shop who have finally replaced it with a new one. This one seems, so far, to work. The old ones would both power themselves off for no apparent reason failing to save what they were recording and leaving the SD card corrupt so it had to be reformatted to get back.

It does suffer from the same problem as the other cameras though, that the output is really boring. When it is approaching interesting, which is not often and only when travelling at speed, then the vibrations are terrible. So I hope to not post any showing me being cut up or pulled out on by cars.

Anyway seven of us rode over Headley then down to Newdigate, Ockley, over Leith Hill to Dorking then up over Ranmore and then to the Cafe in Leatherhead. Brilliant weather very pleasant ride.

63 miles, top speed 47mph Average 16mph

Sounds like you may or may not go for the surgical rubber strech tubing suspension handlebar mount. Although the behind the seat , one meter vertical mount forward directed lens view might be quite dramatic. Great Cardo.... Cheers.

I believe Stuart has had to return both of his 'SD' Card camera's they failed after very little use, both with Power related problems.
