via a friend–helmet with integrated camera: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KHGWTA6/
no idea, for starters, whether you can separate the camera (which is inside a thickened visor) to charge it/transfer video, or have to carry the entire helmet to plug it in…
There’s also this, which isn’t exactly a helmet cam, but seems like it addresses the needs of the bike rider pretty well.
Most AC-DC adapters accept input at 50/60 Hz, 110-240 V AC so a UK charger should be usable if you happen to have a plug adapter.
^@jonawebb – The Rideye is a cool thing, but the “pre-production ride footage” mostly proves that the test rider is a really shitty rider.
My back blinky crapped out again today. I’m ready to throw it in the river.
I’m seriously considering the Fly 6 – thoughts? Do people who have it like it?
I really like it. I never have to do anything but charge it. It’s reliable and works well.
Make sure you have space on your seatpost to mount it. O/w you have to monkey around with it and build something from plumbing supplies.
Here’s my question – I have a rack with panniers. My current blinky mounts beautifully on the rack. Think I can rig something for similar mounting, or is that what you mean by “plumbing supplies”?
I have two different mounts for my Fly6 on both bikes. One’s a PVC pipe and the other is a professional bike shop mount.
My SD card crapped out the other day and I need to go buy a new one, at least, I hope it’s just the SD card and not some serious issue.
Yeah, that’s what I meant. @RustyRed did something which she’s happy with (http://rustyredriding.blogspot.com/2014/06/review-fly6-cam-aka-asscam.html). But I end up changing seat bags so I could mount the Fly6 on my seatpost. I wanted to avoid something so hacky.
The problem is the Fly6 has a built-in angle so it’s designed to attach to a seatpost. You can’t just mount it vertically. You have to get the angle right.
You could mount an adjustable flag pole holder from a hardware store on the rear of your rack for the fly. Plus on holidays or protests you could carry a flag.
Indeed, effing brilliant.
For me a good hardware store is like Aladdin’s Cave of Wonders.
Has anyone seen anything like this in action:
I am going to try and come up with some kind of packstrap mount on my own.
