open topic, for anything cycling related.
This is a video about my new light, but also shows some pretty impressive low light footage from my Mobius camera. This is shot with all default settings and Wide Dynamic Range enabled.
Its no GoPro, and you will see a few obvious flaws but for $75, I think it does well.
Sinner Bikes. €109 + postage - EU VAT.
Its a straight swap, reuses existing mounts, wiring, switches and charger.
Great little thing and not bad price either. How long will it record for till it's full?
I'm wondering if it will record an entire trip from Melb to Syd?
I've also wanted an onboard camera to record idiots on the road at times. Imagine if you had the 360 camera working haha since I'd be more worried about a hit and run. I guess insurance would take care of things like that.
The only problem is that I have no idea which cams I should get. Any recommendations?
What are Sinner like for postage?
The Mobius battery will last about 80-90 minutes. Of course in the mango, I have USB power outlets meaning I charge and record for as long as the memory card will allow.
I run a 32 Gb card which is the stated max although many guys on the RC-groups forum use 64Gb cards successfully.
If you set the quality to "low" (on a scale of L/M/H) you could probably record all of Syd to Melb (assume you are talking car trip) on a 32 Gb card. What I do though is set it to "loop recording". Then it saves files in 5 min blocks and just loops around deleting the oldest file. If something interesting happens on a ride, you can hit a button and that 5 min block gets set to "don't overwrite". Alternately you could swap memory cards when you pull over for fuel etc.
Sinner charged me 26 euros for postage but that was for a box that included a new hub and a spare mid drive cog as well. They posted the next business day.
Ex VAT, the light cost me 90 euro, but be aware, this is the "Light only" price and did not include the battery or charger which I already had.
Have you got a couple more images of this o-ring setup? I just received my XD1080 mini in the post and I don't think the curved mount will fit my helmet, so I'm trying to think up some other solutions.
No, unfortunately I only took the one shot - it's basically just a silicon O-ring from garmin looped through one of the vents in the helmet, pretty simple.
As of yesterday I've stuck the domed mount onto the top of my helmet with the adjustable mount. The 3M glue has formed a very strong bond with the helmet even though it isn't contacting 100%. It's not as neat, the camera is more easily adjustable.
I just picked up one of those $48 3SIXT cameras from BigW. It's a very good example of getting what you pay for! The packaging and build quality - especially of the accessories is quite low. The supplied handlbar mount for example is is quite heavy and fiddly to adjust. It will be interesting to see how it compares to the other cameras.
curious to see the output!
@rhubarb, that recumbent of yours flies! And the light and camera aren't bad either.

Had a day at home yesterday, so I knocked this up with some old inner tube for insulation and support and a couple of zip ties. Seems to work okay. It's certainly secure but doesn't allow much movement. Also destroys the zip ties if I want to remove it. Might try the domed mount on the top of the helmet but I'm worried there won't be enough contact area. Might stick a zip tie over the top for insurance.
Sorry for the poor image quality.
What do you think if the microphone on these? I find it very susceptible to wind noise, as to be expected, but the supplied wind breaker stickers cause a much degraded signal, in my opinion. I might investigate a piece of foam of some description instead of the sticker.
I suppose these things aren't bought for their audio performance.
Just ordered a Fly6. $164 delivered.
Slight delay in delivery but I am happy nonetheless, here is part of the delivery email:
Shipping Details/Delivery Update
Given the size of the orders on hand, we have had to get them ready in two batches. Our first batch is currently having the Nano Technology applied prior to packaging & sending to the fulfilment centre.
The first batch will be shipped from our fulfilment centre with an estimated 'doorstep arrival' timeframe of the third week in June and the second batch should be arriving in the last week of June.
We had planned to get them finished earlier however we had the opportunity to address the 'halo effect' that our triallists were discussing with us and we took it. This means that while it has added around two weeks to our (internal) program, your Fly6 will not have the dramatic 'halo effect' that the trial units do.
has anyone seen or used one of these? http://www.kogan.com/au/buy/dual-camera-car-dvr-gps/
Car Dual Camera Dash Video Recorder with GPS. Would love to see some sample footage
/edit. just found some and some reviews. dont bother.
HI folks - Andrew, CEO of Fly Lites (creators of Fly6) here....lots of interesting solutions for getting footage while you are riding. I see some of you have ordered a Fly6 and some of you already have the trial/prototypes. For the others, I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have relating to Fly6. I've noted a number of comments relating to how it 'fits' or 'will it fit on my bike' - we now have over 9 reviews published (with more to come) that are a great way to see (via photos and sometimes video) how Fly6 sits on various bikes - http://fly6.com/reviews/ .
To answer what I see as a common question in this thread - we are designing a front solution (Fly12) using the same principles as we did with Fly6. It is very early days so any estimated release date would be wrong so we will lets subscribers to our website & social media channels know as soon as we have a firm timeframe.
I am patiently waiting for my Fly6. What can you tell us about the Fly12?
I guess from my point of view, I already run a decent front light, so if it was just a (USB-rechargable) blinky with a camera, that would work for me better than another big-ass light
Hi Jason - we are very early (I mean a couple of months into a 12-18 month process) in the design stage for Fly12 that there is little to 'give away' except to say that it is looking very cool and the features we are going to include will, let's say, "meet the market". As mentioned it will include the same key features that Fly6 has (battery life that meets the needs of most cyclists, incident protection, set & forget, USB rechargeable, great camera & light, weather proof, etc). I can say that we have enlisted the help of some high profile cyclists to help us in the design phase which is exciting for us and important for the outcome. If we get Fly12 right - it should be something that looks right on your bike!
this is a big-ass light:
i'd be hoping for something around this size:
With Autumn upon us my commute home is now in darkness. Curiously my humble 808 #16 camera does a decent job of recording at night, but my GoPro HD Hero does not. Unless there is very good street lighting, the image is almost entirely black.
Any suggestions on GoPro settings to best capture night images ?
