Can't adjust the date (or rather don't know how). You tube has compressed video and hence not so good quality.

Cost me approx Aus$45.

Cool video and not bad for a little cheepo.... What got me laughing was when the video first started seeing these two little tootsies taking up most of my screen doing there job and not a bad speed you reached either.

Thanks Ricky

Hi Matt,
Got the camera off "evilbay". Do a search under mini dv80.

If anyone wondering what the red bottle is, it's my Airzound. Save me a few times. Highly recommended for recumbent.

I think what you meant to say was, lucky I entered the wrong wheel circumference into the Sigma and my actual top speed was precisely 60 Kmph :wink:

Another video shot with the camera on our usual Saturday route. This was along the new section of Pacific Hwy south of Boambee. I will stay behind the paceline if they are doing what it's needed to go fast but once it starts to get disorganised, I will chase whoever are sprinting away. Good fun :D

That last video Low racer seems to be crisper and clearer than the first one you posted not as much shake. Boy that bike of yours must roll well I was intrigued to see you just coasting for such a long time while the boys on the DF bikes were still peddling sweet ride you got there. :D

FYI, I picked one of these up off ebay for ~$25 last night - ~$12.99 at auction, and postage ~$12.99. Will be interested to give this a go.

There were other auctions there with varying prices and postage amounts too.

That link doesn't give me one item, rather the whole 11825 items under 'cycling'. What keyword(s) did you use or better, can you give a direct link?

Type in Spy camera and you should get the hits you want!
Here's one, might even buy it myself at that price,

You guys are making me feel bad with my purchase :oops:

Great bargain price for a good camera under $20.
