Default Track cams

Thought this might be a good idea for us track fans.

List of cams, rating, review etc.


Got this one the other day, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=110528996793



Only fitted atm, hopefully try it out next weekend to get some video quality tests etc.
The build quality is good, has loads of accessories and came with a small remote recording button.

My first camera recoding experience was using this

Flip Video Ultra Camcorder - 0.31 MP - Black



I used it on a Top Gear Test Track day. It was my mates as I was currently saving for one at the time. Its a great little cam. Simple to use and great quility.

Here are 2 videos which it recordered.

My Saxo on the Top Gear Test Track 1 - 09/05/09

My Saxo on the Top Gear Test Track 2 - 09/05/09

Due to its size I simple slotted it into my phone holder in which it held perfectly well. Altho I would highly advised where possible get a clamp and screw camera holder like so:

Clamps and roll cage mounts
for bullet cameras


****----****----*****-----

At French Car Show I decided to get something simple and ended up with this:

808 car keys micro-camera



Again another good bit of kit but no screen and no feedback regarding battery, time remaining or whether it is actually recording so I wouldnt recommend it.

FCS 13-06-10 Sax-p Track Session


****----****----*****-----

I'm now using JVC Picsio Pocket Cam HD SD/SDHC - Black



Used it once @ Trax '10 for my session on the silverstone track.

Fantastic bit of kit, great quility. Unfortnatly I didnt back it up and used the same memnory card for something else and well fubar'd it and lost the footage.

I have footage from FCS but not yet uploaded to Youtube.



Thats what I use seems robust as ive put it through some shit on my MTB too. Cant grumble for the money I would recomend it. even if you have a proper camera setup for the sake of £10 you could mount one of these to the back or something to give you an alternative view etc.


Some footage shot on mine

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJLs3WXWkiE


Very good for the money

Only downer is you have to take a laptop or something to download the footage onto. Although a 8gb card sees over an hour of footage and the battery lasts around 2 hours.



Good for the nurburgring too as people dont look in your lower grille

I also use one of these, £10 off eBay + 16GB memory card and mounted with a bit of velcro on top of the dashboard.

Not exactly brilliant quality, but does the job.

Ive been looking at getting a camera for a while now but was thinking of buying one that bolts to the cage.

Have you got a link to these?

Also how do you get what you have filmed onto the computer with it being so small?

I was fortunate to pick up a racelogic video vbox for a very cheap price a few months back. Havnt used it yet nor have an idea how to use it but it's a good bit of kit. It's a bit too 'pro' for what I will use it for but it was an absolute bargin so couldn't refuse it as they are mega expensive brand new. Ive been told it's a bit tempremental but is fine 90% of the time.

As I use my car everyday it's a bit too OTT to have it hard wired in and I'll be honest it's just been sat in my wardrobe haha. I used a keyring cam like the ones in this thread for Anglesey and Oulton though. Was pretty good quality for £7 although you can't really tell if it's recording or not lol!

That quality looks not too bad, I am gonna mount one on the front spoiler & rear bumper. Not too bothered if they get broken at that cost.

I bought one of those keyfob cameras off ebay, cant complain for money.

I taped it to my front bumper for a hillclimb and it came out pretty well.

My friend has the contour HD GPS which he used for snowboarding, guessing it could be used for a track day as well? Not sure how accurate the speed is though
