cheap incar camera's?

Post by CNHSS1 » Sun Jul 07, 2013 12:44 pm

Dont fancy a few hundred quid on a GoPro, but would like summat for incar for datalogging purposes to help bring my driving back up to standard. Im sure John and Steve Louch used summat simple, what do others use? And from where?

I've used NOVUS cameras from dal-tec.com (speak to Jason Anthony, I've an email address if you want) for the cars belonging to the company I used to work for, have GPS too which is quite useful, fasten to windscreen so don't get in the way, and are quite reliable, not high res, but pretty good


Current List of toys.... Suzuki DR200, Suzuki GS550L, Harley Davidson Dyna Wide Glide, VW T4 Transporter Camper, XR3i Cabriolet (in pieces).... SS1 1600.. seen better days (that goes for me and the car), but it's a start :) Mk2 Sabre has arrived :D

The one they got was linked in this thread. No frills, but certainly seems cheap enough (assuming it's still working?)

Yes yours is HD..... I'm getting pixel envy :lol:

I think for around fifty quid the SD one I've got is cracking value. There is a Chinese version of the HD one on eBay for around £60, it looks the same, but that means nothing :lol:

The great thing about these is that you can adjust the horizon, so it can be placed at any angle. I have mine on the roll cage's diagonal rear bar. They also come with a good selection of mounts. My mount is held on with two big jubilee clips.

Funily enough, our friendly scrutineer mate commented on how secure it was fitted :lol:

Craig, the good thing about these is that you can start and stop record via a wireless button on your steering wheel.

When you are all strapped in and wearing gloves this is very useful.

My problem is remembering to either press start or stop; I either get nothing or hours paddock activity :roll: :lol:
