The team over at London Bikers have been busy putting the new MINI DVR HD head camera to the test. Our latest high definition on-board camera was used as both a helmet camera and mounted to the bike. Here’s what they thought…
Convenience 9/10 – All components are pretty small and compact so the camera isn’t obtrusive
Compatibility 9/10 – The Mini DVR HD shoots .MOV files in H.264 codec so won’t cause your everyday video software any problems. The unit can be hooked straight up to the TV.
In Use 9/10 – There are several menu options to play with to enhance the recording; exposure, white balance, frame rate, mic levels, motion detection etc all of which can bring that little extra flexibility or quality to the end product.
Value 9/10 – For £250 this is a great camera.
Optically it captures well in sunshine and overcast conditions, plus there is a white balance option if you want to alter the ‘light’ cast (sometimes shade produces a blue tinge for example).
Overall 36/40 – A job well done
