I had been looking for a camera to strap to my helmet and film some rides... i went with a Flip cam at first but then setup wasn't ideal plus the camera shook around way too much which provided for a nauseating playback.
I found the Vholdr cam through a motocross forum somewhere else on the Internets and also inquired about it here in some threads. After about 5 rides i can proudly state that i love the thing. It attaches easily, has a rotating head to keep the camera level at all times, and has a rugged construction. The camera has an ON and OFF button... switch it on and it records, simple as that.
Has anyone else tried this camera or any others? I'm wondering other people's experiences with videotaping their rides/helmet cams etc.
The POV1 is the best one I have seen out there. Same one that all of the filmers use. This past seasons model had a problem with the cable though. More than one person had the prongs break on them. Next year's camera is supposed to have this issue fixed.
The really nice thing with the POV1 is being able to review your footage right after you've filmed it. It's pretty slick. The wide angle lens is also great. Makes it much easier to aim the camera and capture the moment.
Hey doubledip. i purchased a samsung scx-300L. not a bad camera. sometimes had a prob with the camera shutting off by itself due to the vibrations from riding and jumping. other than that its not bad. it comes as 2 units that u can use seperately. the main camcorder, and a detachable helmet cam
Finally got around to reading that POV1 review, good stuff. I needed a Mac compatible and the large recorder seems illogical to me. also it sounds kinda dangerous if you're buddy broke a rib landing on it. good review tho, thanks for your guys' help
The "large" recorder isn't that big, and I think the primary reason it's the size it is, is because of the video screen. It's pretty awesome that you can review what you filmed right after you filmed it. Makes it easy for you to make adjustments with your camera angle and such. So far from what I've seen the POV outshines all the others. Next years model is also supposed to be much improved.
