Video Camera

I bought a cost effective ($40) video camera. The main purpose is here lately seems like every vehicle on the road during my commute was out to get me. I mounted to fairing to test. Well that didn't go very well. Way too much vibration. Going for plan B, don't know what that is yet. Really don't want it on my helmet as I change helmets at least on a weekly basis so I can wash some of the funk out caused by our wonderful Texas heat. I just posted a short video so y'all can see what not to do.

It says This video is unavailable.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

I picked up a cheap one too, for the same reason, and I came to the conclusion that the best mounting point would be on the chin of a full face helmet. But since I ride with an open face, not an option. It's in a drawer somewhere.

Here's Plan B. Worked pretty good. Sorry for the long video, I'm to lazy to edit. One thing I was trying to make sure is that I could read the licence plate of other vehicles, mission accomplished. Top speed was 55 mph, wind noise is bad but I'm ok with that. Yes, today was trash day and I have to put my trash can up. Yes, I live in a middle class subdivision, Yes my garage is messy, Yes, tranny makes noise when you shift. No, I don't stop 100% all the time, I'll stop twice next time. The concrete roads around here have a lot of dips and camera didn't move much. I'm now pretty happy with my $40 camera. Picture of bike is to show where i mounted camera. I think it looks ok there. One reason I mounter there is I have an USB port about 6 inches above it and can run a charger cable. Comments?

Camera looks very discreet. I had to really look to see it. But I can't see the videos either.

I reloaded the videos. Hopefully y'all can see them now. Would someone please let me know if they are visible? I'm a rookie with this YouTube stuff. My grand kids aren't here so I can't ask them. 😂

I saw the video. It looked pretty good. How long of a ride can you get in before either recharging or filling up the disk space?

It says 2.5 hours for battery and 32 gig card should be about the same. My commute is right at 2 hours round trip. The camera will rewrite over previous video if I don't save. Since I'm using mainly for commuting I don't need to save. It has a quick disconnect so I can easily remove at work. Still trying to figure out Wi-Fi and app, it's really hard to understand the manual the way it's written. Or maybe this old brain is just overloaded. We will see how it works on a daily basics. If plan B records like first test I'm very happy with my $40 camera. I might try to move it a little so front fender isn't in picture. But if I can't it's not that bad.
