    New "bullet cam" with DVR (like VIO) - Sierra MTB footage

    I was just sent this cool cam setup from eHelmetCam.com to test out. It is a "bullet cam" with a full featured DVR.

    It has a boatload of camera setting options as well as playback, preview etc... for about $400. One of the best things I've noticed so far is little to no "jello-ing" of the video when you hit the harsh chop.

    Being a bullet cam style allows you to locate the camera in a lot more creative areas too... which I will be experimenting with

    Currently I've got it mounted on my Tallboy full suspension 29er... yes, with a Lefty fork on it...

    Here is some RAW video with some good views and some techy rock crawling:

    Nice bike... I've got a Lefty with P321 blue hubs, too (on my Pivot)!

    Are you going to tell us a bit more about the cam? Name or something so we can go look up specs and stuff?

    Great footage, 29er on a lefty never seen one before always find looking down from the handle bars to a lefty a bit strange and that's on 26! But if it works it works.

    Re the camera I'm looking for cheaper option - any suggestions on using an iPhone for POV?

    If you did use your iPhone, I'd rig a chest mount... about the most stable and isolated part of your body.

    I prefer frame mounts, but I personally would not want to subject my phone to those forces!

    Here is a bit more raw video from the CamShot... some SWEET singletrack in Oregon

    I really like the fact that I can do an ALL DAY ride and not run out of battery or disk space...
