***Group buy started over in the vendor section http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1009833 I've been looking for a dashcam style camera for my motorcycle for a bit after seeing a few accidents and I started talking to Rock at Innovv a little while ago about the motorcycle/action camera that he was developing over on the dashcam forums. He decided to let me do some pre-production testing on his new C3 remote lens camera. He sent me a unit to test and see what I thought of it. First off this camera unit and lens are pretty small and there is no plastic in either housing except for maybe the buttons on the recoding unit. Everything else is aluminum. The lens assembly is waterproof and the recording unit is not. The lens cable is 1.5 meters long. The comes full of mounts and cords and was surprisingly heavy when it showed up. Here's a list of what comes in the box 1x Innovv C3 Camera 1x Innovv C3 Lens 1x lens mount 1x USB cable 1x AV cable 1x Dashcam cable(4m) 1x Camera bracket 1x 3M Helmet mount 1x 3M Dashcam mount 1x Bar mount 1x Head mount 1x Microphone set 1x Car charger adapter 1x User manual Most of the mounts are useful and the 1/4-20 camera mounts are the most useful since they will let you use any camera mount that you may already have. I like using Ram mounts since they are pretty bulletproof and inexpensive. They don't come with the camera but you can find them almost anywhere. Rear facing mount on my Tuono I also used one of the included mounts with a plastic wedge to get the right angle for a helmet mount. The helmet mount works well for recording dashcam style footage but if you want footage that doesn't move around all of the time with wind buffeting and bumpy roads, it's best to find a stable place to mount the camera that's not attached to your wobbly neck. You get a choice of a 90 degree or 120 degree lens with the camera or you can buy both and swap them out for different shots. They both work great, I prefer the 90 lens for use as a dashcam and the 120 makes for good senic shots. You have a few options on how you can power the camera.Using the internal battery you can record for about 110 minutes. with an small generic usb external power pack you can go for a few hours depends on the size of the pack or you can plug it in to the usb adapter that takes 12v to 5v and record for as long as the memory lasts in single file mode or forever in loop recording mode. There is also a still picture mode but I haven't messed around with that function yet. You can set up the camera to act as a automatic dashcam when it's wired to the bikes power. When you turn your bike on it will automatically start recording and stop when you turn it off. The loop recording mode will record until the memory card is full and then it will start to overwrite the oldest files first. I get about 4.7 hours of video using a 32gb card so there's not much worry about losing a file that you want to keep if something happens. Also if your running on internal battery and you run out of power the camera will save the last file before it dies so that it doesn't get corrupted. I've been using it for the most part as a dashcam to record my daily commute and I haven't been gentle with it. The build quality seems to be very solid. It's also has a lot more uses that just a dashcam and I'll be posting those up as I test them over the next couple of weeks. So far everything is looking very promising, solid build quality and images I'm going to make a "how to" using the POV headset mount and remote microphone and I'm gonna mount it to a variety of firearms to get some real first person shooter video at the shooting range. Stay tuned for updates.
