Any good? Rubbish? Awesome?

Would have liked to have had one on the peaks ride - always nice to see how the ride was sitting on the sofa etc after the event.

I see theyre quite affordable now - I guess it really depends on the quality playback etc.

Anyone with any experience of them?

No personal experience, but this site has some good clips and details at the bottom of cameras used

Jez, we sell the 20/20 helemt camera, one of my riding buddies has one and it's fantastic, you have to connect to an MP4 or such like.

I've done helmet cam footage for a cwmcarn race last yr. I think the company hire the camera out via cwmcarn, do a search :)
picture quality was really good & was smoother footage than I expected (cwmcarn climb as a DH isnt exactly tarmac :lol: must be all that suspension travel :wink: :lol:

Jez

I was looking for a suitable camcorder for a mate a while back, as he already had the cam/lens for use in his car. I think that may be the older way of doing it, small pencil cam on the helmet, wired to the AV in of your existing camcorder(if ya have one) in ya bakpak.
