Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

After I get to play with it some I'll post a couple of videos. I'll try to do a "low light" situation as well.

Who has personal experience mounting these cameras on a helmet and how did you do it without it hanging off the side like some kind of weird cactus.

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

This is on it's way to me from Hong Kong right now.





It's new to market, so I'll be an early adopter guinea pig for them. I hope it works out well.

Sorta, but it's specific to motorcycles. One facing forward, probably under the front nose of the fairing, and the rear mounted under the trunk. I'll have to wait until it arrives to see what will fit where. The central unit will hold up to a 256gb card so it will record quite a bit before it writes over the older recordings.

I have a space under my trunk floor where my SD card MP3 player resides and I think the central unit will fit in there as well.

That's a blue and yellow putty you knead together .

I used that because then chin got pretty narrow and the GoPro mount wouldn't have had much contact if I had used the two sided 3M sticky pads (they work fine so far on my current helmet after unveiling a completely flat surface under my front vent slide.)

Kneadatite Blue/Yellow Epoxy Putty Tape 36" "Green Stuff" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MQ7EHHC..._VJHFBbGHZJ032

Since this is epoxy, there was no glueing needed after it cured overnight. Been on it for months now.

MotoRadds Motorcycle Helmet Chin Mount for GoPro https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074W2J774..._.NHFBb1G2QKN4
I bought this after reading some recommendations (On, I think, ADVRider), when I was sure I'll buy another helmet as I missed having a peak, didn't need it as the new helmet is a camera mounter's gift from God

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

Is that a wireless Innov? I've looked at those but didn't like that they went to single camera for the latest setup. Haven't looked at them in about six months. Will be interested to hear your review.

And I'm with morfic, that's where I keep mine.

My mechanic really liked the way they were built; the video images are very crisp, but I can't connect to the DVR with my Pixel 2XL yet I can connect with the wife's Pixel 2. I've got a request in for support.

I have an extremely slow upload connection, so once they are loaded to YouTube I'll drop a link in here so everyone can see the quality of the images. It might take a while before that happens.

Is this in reference to something else in the post?

Reference to camera mount location I'd say.

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

The front mount is a lousy picture, but the rear mount is much more clear. Both are low key and not really visible unless you know what you're looking for. I'm just going to have to get into the habit of wiping off the lenses at fuel stops.

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

Okay, here's the video sample of my ride home from the shop. Stop and go commute traffic. Front camera only.

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

At 1080p it still takes getting up close to read license plates, otherwise it is really good.

Hopefully good enough to ID the driver that hits me from behind and then leaves the scene.

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

We finished the trip from Houston to Alberta and back with adventures in Glacier and Yellowstone among other places. The Bravo was mounted part of the time on J's Dl650 and part of the time on mine. I like the ability to switch lens angles. The videos were INCREDIBLE in terms of resolution. The photos were great. My only complaint was the storage. We ran 64GB San Disk and Samsung Micro SD cards. They only lasted a day or so and then I had to figure out how to take stuff and store it elsewhere to free up space. The waterproof case worked well. My only complaint about it was the fact it wore spots in the camera exterior. It is now a Black camera with lots of exposed white/gray plastic. I am working wiht the manufacturer to get it replaced.

If anyone wants to see videos or photos let me know.

Amazon had the Bravo 4 on a lightening deal again on Thursday.

Oh yeah, make 100% certain you guy at least 4 extra batteries. The sucker eats them for lunch and snacks.

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

I wouldn't mind seeing a sample video. Alos, how was the battery life on it? You say it eats them but how long does a single battery usually last?

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

I'll post some videos next week. Still trying to sort through 3+ terabytes of videos and stills from the trip. We had 4 cameras and that's a pain to get all of them cataloged. 2 A6000 Sony, 1 point and shoot Panasonic and the GoPro knock off.

Batteries... Well i would guess about an hour each at Max. We had a total of 6 batteries that we started each day off charged. Thank goodness for USB charging capabilities on the fly.
