action cam3 used on supermoto,
This review is from: Chilli Technology Action 3 HD 720P Head Cam - Black (Sports)
I brought the action cam 3 to use while riding my supermoto
I wasn't sure what to expect for £40. It also comes with various straps etc.
Some of you will be aware that the single cylinder supermoto's vibrate like mad.
I tried the handlebar mount but it made the vid wavy, i am sure it would work on a pushbike and possibly other motorbikes but not the supermoto. (TIP) I cut the loop off the handle bar mount and fixed the mount to my visor screw, works a treat ;)
Not much good for my type of helmet as were the cam is needed the strap would have to go across my visor.
Included is also a sticky velcro pad, seems very strong and should hold the cam easily, i wouldn't stick it to my helmet.
I have tested the cam on a ride out and the overall quality is good in day time recording.
Very good sound quality until i got to about 20mph (TIP) Cover the mic hole on the cam with something, i used spongy tape.
Covering the mic will stop the wind noise but engine sound and voice can still be recorded ;)
Overall a great little cam for the money.
To see the quality of this cam look on youtube.

What is a "spongy tape"?

Draught tape but single sided sticky

Thanks for the tip on the draught tape. I have a Kwak twin with C/F cans and wind noise at only 20mph blocks out the sound of the cans. Now, I know the cure Great stuff! Cheers Gary.

I haven't been able to find software that allows you to edit the footage from these cameras, does anybody have any suggestions??

Convert the avi. file to a wmv. file & use Microsoft Live Movie Maker. I converted mine using YTD Video Downloader

You use the word USED "To edit I always used windows movie maker" Is that because you don't make videos so much anymore or you use another program like Sony Vegas?
And yes I would love to see a video or two to get an idea of quality if that is not too much trouble.

Sorry I have used the action cam a couple of times within the year, I have just checked my YouTube channel and there are no vids from taken with the action cam, I can get one done soon and add it. I do now use Sony Vegas pro but kind of still getting to grips with it.
