Emma Franklin Time tested Two race meet­ings What’s good? This pro­fes­sional-spec bul­let cam­era records all your on-track ac­tion in 1280p HD and (when linked to an AIM log­ger) in­stantly cre­ates data over­lay graph­ics so you can cre­ate videos show­ing speed, en­gine rpm, lean an­gle and more. It’s beau­ti­fully made fea­tur­ing a 67-de­gree widean­gle cam­era wired to a screen unit en­cased in wa­ter­proof and ro­bust mo­tor­sport-grade alu­minium. The Smar­ty­cam also fea­tures a smart record func­tion, which means it’ll start record­ing as soon as it de­tects mo­tion. The bat­tery lasts for a full day of ses­sioned record­ing and is eas­ily charged via USB. It’s the eas­i­est way to cre­ate HD videos with data over­lay and does away with the need for com­pli­cated soft­ware.

What’s not? It’s quite bulky – I mounted the cam on my bike’s tank us­ing Black­tack, then had to find some­where to stash the screen. And although it’s a top qual­ity piece of kit, the price means it’s a lit­tle out of reach for most track­day rid­ers. Con­tact
