Right then - thanks for the replies.
I think I will go for the extreme sports pack for a starter, as I was planning on using it mainly helmet mounted. Just hope I don't have to move my helmet light mount to get the camera bodged on as well....
monkeysfeet - I know what you mean about the on/off switch & the vox switch. When I use mine, I think I will just leave it on - it seems to go into a sleep mode if not recording for a couple of mins, and wakes with a press of the record button.
When I took it out on the road, I kept having to check that I had actually pressed the start recording button as it wasn't exactly obvious. 50% of the time, I hadn't started the recording (it was still on blue LED).....and I had to press again (slow green flashing). This won't be very easy to confirm if I am out on my own! Might have to get one of those angled dental mirrors - do Park Tools do them?!
I did think that setting it up will be a case of tinkering at home with the laptop close at hand to check the angle....
orangeman5 - yeah, the shots of the road & the front end of my bike did look pretty good quality! Amazing what they can pack into such a small camera. I think I will also be using the lanyard as a back-up strap to secure it!
foxyrider - I did wonder about prodigious use of gaffer tape and zip ties!!
Another couple of Q's -
There are quite a few mentions of the standard card not being up to the task in terms of speed resulting in a jerky image. Faster cards are supposed to sort this. Has anyone noticed this problem? I wondered if that was just with the HD version?
There seems no way to set the date? All files seem to be named pict001, pict002 etc. with a date of something like Jan 01/2001. I take it there's no way to set this??
Finally, is there any decent (preferably free) video editing software out there? And is it worth converting the files into something a bit more compressed? The files seem quite hefty straight out of the camera.
