    Helmet Camera

    Hi all,

    As per title really.

    My old, cheap, and probably Chinese helmet camera has finally given up the ghost so am in need of a replacement.

    Whilst the GoPro Teletubby style on the chin or side of helmet appears to be common, I've always adopted the torpedo style, mounted centrally on top of the helmet approach (various reasons behind this). Sticky pads and zip ties are the method.

    Looking for advice on any cameras you may use which you like. Just need waterproof, 2hrs battery and decent 1024 recording.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Cheers

    Hi I have a Mio My vue M560 stuck on the side of my helmet attached to a Screwfix  2600 ma  power pack by a usb
    the clarity is good and there is the options to alter the length of the record clip.
    The only downside is if you fit the waterproof end cap the microphone is covered .
    off the top of my head as it where is was around 100.
    Have a look on you tube for reviews

    That's exactly the type/style I'm after but they're out of stock/not available  :172:

    Think I may of got lucky with my last Chinese one so don't fancy taking a 30+ guess.

    What do you want a helmet mounted camera for?

    I have front and rear cameras mounted on the motorcycle for the purpose of providing evidence should things go pear shaped. The system I have and recommend is BlueSkySea's DV988 Motorcycle Dash Camera with Wi-Fi and GPS.

    Nice bit of kit, but it can't  record the kites soaring over your head in the mountains of Wales :001:

    What do you want a helmet mounted camera for?

    I have front and rear cameras mounted on the motorcycle for the purpose of providing evidence should things go pear shaped. The system I have and recommend is BlueSkySea's DV988 Motorcycle Dash Camera with Wi-Fi and GPS.

    Mainly because I use the bike for London which as you know is total chaos. Head turning left, right, behind etc all the time. Found that when I have it on my helmet it catches any outcome/grief....including how i fall when knocked off.

    Got squeezed like a grape up against the kerb outside Harrods by a twonk in a Merc. No idea where he came from but guess a U turn. Helmet captured me looking at car, down at his wheel, me mounting the pavement and then binning it on the road with a few tumbles. Got away lightly with a broken foot, but as self employed the insurance was a no contest when i sent the vid in. Naturally the Merc driver lied his arse off and was blown out of the water.

    Had a similar some years back with a bike mounted camera which caught nowt.

    Also, the thieveing scrotes in London will literally steal any secured RAM mount - even lost a micro fibre cloth tucked tight behind screen.

    Helmet cam is my way from experience - as we all base our choices on.
