First go with the Drift Action Cam.

Had to rotate when editing so it's squashed it a bit, but hey ho it still gives a good impression of speed.

Two vids in one. First is heading towards Melton/ Raywell. Nice quick tight trail. Second is track before a bit of Spout Hill then into great little ride through woods.

Go easy with me. Still learning don't forget !! Very Happy

Not bad, but you'll immediately see the 3 main problems with the Drift camera.

1. Doesn't handle speed well, picture quality worsens as speed increases.

2. Doesn't handle changes in light well.

3. The footage suffers from an apparent "refreshing" every few frames.

Enjoy it though, it gives you practice at editing, uploading, filming, camera position to get good effect, so if you do move up to a better camera in the future, you'll be in a good position. Wink

Please don't be put off from uploading images from the camera, we still wanto to see them, and it all provides a good experience for others. Very Happy

You now realise you will also have to work out how to add music to your productions.........That can be quite time consuming. Rolling Eyes

Have you had a look at any of our MTBE ones on our Youtube channel to see how our cameras fared?

Had a quick peek. ATC9k looks way cool. But like I said Mrs Moo would have a fit if she knew I was planning on spending £200 on a cam. She went mad enough on the £90 Drift !! lol
