Onboard video of Pahrump, Nevada - 01/29/06

Testing out the camera that I bought from monks01. This was at a track near Las Vegas, super fun track. The camera ran out of batteries at around 6 minutes, bummer.

I'm going to use it to study some races. I can't wait.

Man, so much fun. I need to get on the gas sooner, make tighter lines, and go faaaster. That's my goal next time out ;)

Nice job on the video. Looks like a fun track. I will have to get down for that one.

Thanks guys. Yeah, the track is a lot of fun. You can really go a lot faster than you think you could. Some more videos to come of the other tracks as I figure out the system to have the equipment really secure.

I can't wait to see the difference in the video when racing closer to people. Going to feel like those Moto GP videos :)

Hey papo600rr,

I drilled a hole right on the nose of the upper.




Not sure if there is any wind drag but a way around that is somehow to cover the hole with plexiglass or some other clear cover.

Hella schaweet!
So what do you use as a recording device? A camcorder or digital media player/recorder? Where do you mount all that? Do you shove everything up front in the upper cowl behind the instrumet cluster? Pics of your setup would be greatly apprecieated!

Thanx brotha-man!

I think there was a guy with the Hotbodies Racing crew but his bike wasn't naked, he had the the yellow/black scheme. Man, those R6's pick up fast out of the corners.

Hey rocketjockey,
I use the Samsung SC-X105L. You can view the specs here: http://www.samsung.com/Products/Camc...C_X105LXAA.asp

It's a digital media recorder. The camera itself is cool but the software both from the camera and the one you use to transer to your computer is not ideal. The bullet camera is kind of big, that's why the hole in the front of my upper is big. It takes great quality though.

To use, I have to turn on the camcorder, press a few buttons to set the mode to the bullet camera, press a button on the bullet camera to power it, then press record. It's tedious and I'm sure there's a different setup that's better, but you can't beat the money for it.

I haven't taken any pictures of the setup but if I go to a track this weekend I will take some pictures for you. I basically duct tape a piece of flat metal across the fiberglass air duct mold, and used velcro and duct tape to secure the bullet camera. The bullet camera has a cable that plugs into the camcorder and I routed this cable from the inside of the upper to the air duct cover, to the right side of the tank, to the top of the tank where the ECU is. I used velcro and duct tape to secure the camera. I dont' like it right there but that's the easiest place for me to stick it without it getting in the way of my gauges or handlebars. It doesn't get in the way in tuck or when I'm in the turns either but it really isn't that secure.

I would try to invest in a smaller bullet camera and different digital recorder though to see how the software setup is on the recorder. I was looking into this company, http://www.onbike.tv and they look like they have a promising setup.

rocketjockey,

you may also try looking into this one as well, a lot less expensive than onbike.tv and the quality looks good as well. http://twistingasphalt.com/index.php...-a-helmet-cam/

Lockhart Phillips has a deal on them right now. I am going to do more research for review on it. This would be great for studying the races for sure.

Cool little camera. I use the Panasonic D-Snap (same one sold on the onbike.tv site, but they are charging a bit much). I had to buy a 2GB card to store all my track videos on. The USB2 connection is pretty fast to download the video files. Did you purchase a larger card for your Samsung? About how many minutes of video can you get on a 512MB card?

I have a few bullet cams as well, but never really plug them in because of all the wires. Plus my bullet cams require a seperate battery source, so that's one more thing that needs to have a place on the bike. I decided to just duct tape the entire camera to the top tripple clamp and be done with it. Easy to remove and put in place.

Does the samsung bullet camera need a sperate battery supply? Any idea on battery life?

They look like a well organized site. I got RFConcepts (http://www.rfconcepts.co.uk/helmet_cameras.htm) to sponsor me a helmet camera kit awhile back and they use pretty much the same kit as the onbike.tv site.

Thanx for the info yo!

hey rocketjockey,

Did you purchase a larger card for your Samsung?
yes, I purchased the 2GB card. Plenty of storage for recording track days and/or races. I'm not too sure how much I could save on the 512mb, but I recorded 7 minutes of the highest quality video and it saved it at 100mb. So that's potentially 35 minutes of high quality vid.

I'm planning to push the videos onto the web so I could record at half that quality and get twice as much time. so with the 2GB card, that 70 * 4 = 280 minutes or about 4. 5 hours of video at medium quality. Sorry about the geek talk :)


Does the samsung bullet camera need a sperate battery supply?
Yeah, it needs a separate battery and it's no good because it sucks the juice out of it. I had to change out the battery twice in one track day and that was being conservative with the bullet camera. The twenty20 camera looked promising because you can hook it up to your motorcycle battery and the dimensions appear to be smaller, while also being supplied what looks like to be a sturdy mount.


Any idea on battery life?
Battery life on the camcorder itself is good now because I bought a bigger capacity. It lasts all day and then some.



I really would opt for a smaller bullet camera for easier placement and to be able to hook it up to the motorcycle battery. I'm still doing research but twenty20 and onbike.tv looks promising.
