  • Oregon Scientific helmet cam (with video!!11!)

    I bought an Oregon Scientific sport helmet cam, and took it for a run at about dusk last night:


    CBF250 + Oregon Scientific helmet cam test run

    This is a test run of my new Oregon Scientific helmet cam, at dusk. It's mounted on the front left indicator of my Honda CBF250. Apart from the high contrast areas (lit sky vs shadowed landscape), it does quite well. The film was taken at about 5:30pm in winter, so by the time I got back, it was quite dark.

    Things to do:
    1) Daylight test
    2) Turn the gain on the mic down (or muffle it somehow)
    3) Find a less shaky mounting point

    I'm a novice rider, so my technique needs work (in before teh "U SUCK"s), and yes, I AM squidding, due to the gravel and sand on the corners.

    I've decided to leave the audio in, because the distortion makes the bike sound more beastly than it actually is. I've also edited out about 3 minutes of straight road, to get the video under 10 minutes.

    Enjoy, or not, it's your choice.

    I ordered and paid for the cam in mid march, and after 4 months of screwing around, Camera House decided they couldn't get it for me any more, so they apparently upgraded me to the next model for no extra charge. Hopefully, I can get some footage along the coastal tourist loop for you guys this weekend.

    Hmmm, nice work, cleaner picture than I expected, mayhap I should get one of these..

      This is the camera: Waterproof Action Cam (AT18) (AT18-08G) :Action Cam: Outdoor: Oregon Scientific

      I was surprised at how well it handled low light situations.

        The old one was balls at low light.
        Also the strap didn't fit onto my helmet.
        Also the mount for the camera broke so now it needs to be 100MPH taped (Thanks Ghetto!) to shit.
        Need to find it and take it to paint ball....

          Yeah, the strap doesn't fit on my motorbike helmet. I'm still working on that technicality. In the mean time, the handlebar mount works great.

          You can get new mounting kits for THIS model for about $15: Accessory/Mounting Kit (ATC3KACC01G) :Action Cam Accessories: Outdoor: Oregon Scientific

          Dunno if it will fit yours or not though...

            $15 to replace the mount that will probably just break again?

            Pfft.
            100MPH tape will do.

              Guess it depends on whether you learned anything when you broke it the first time

                I was actually putting it on my bike.
                The mount snapped in half.

                  Nice. The handlebar mount? I guess it would, if you tried to open it too far. Soaking it in hot water first would probably help with that.

                    No, the mounting plate that the rubber strap goes through.
                    Handlebar mount wasn't thick enough to mount to anything.
