Post subject: It's done.... Drift Stealth purchased  PostPosted: Jan 10, 2012 - 09:51 PM

After wanting a cam for quite a while I have done it and bought a drift stealth with some extras. I didn't want a gopro because in uk there overpriced and look gash, the contour gps was a contender due to being better fitting on helmet and the bonus of a viewfinder app to start stop the recordings.
So the drift was left as top dog and action cameras have 15% off drift gear with scuk membership. Deal done can't wait to have a play with it at cas before the bash. Might get out next weekend to have a play...
Any tips on setup/ editing?
Cheers
Dave

Just out of interest why didn't you pick the ContourGPS?

Just two reasons.
The contour mounting systems are unique but the drift uses the standard threaded with various options from cheap aftermarket.
The remote record vs the slide power switch of contour, personally I feel that the slide was good but I just had the thought of when it's on your head for example which way is on again? And you endup missing some action whereas the little remote is super simple. Why make it complex?

Forgot to say, all in with all the extras included I got 15% off the lot. If I had got the contour with the same level of bits and pieces I would be £50 out of pocket

Seriously tempted to get the Ultimate Snowbundle

Is this the bundle that you got? What's it like to use?

A couple of us have got stealth cams this year and they have been a great investment. The remote is a great wee gadget, the battery supplied has lasted well although extras are worth getting. i haven't got one yet but a monopod and a geko mount will liven up your footage. Helmet mounts ensure you get what you are looking at but pov footage will get very boring very quickily for anyone but the riders involved unless you have something going on in the foreground. We've found that 720 is as much as you need but use the 60fps setting for smoother footage. The low light setting is very effective.

Once you upload to youtube expect their codecs to mangle your footage anyway.

'k me, that's cheap! Paid £150 for mine, still a bargain though. Great camera & easy to use up mountain. Plus you don't look like a coal miner when you've got it on your helmet (esp. if you've got a peak).

Yeah, that's why I bought it - I mean who could resist at that price! Do you mount it on the top or side of your helmet?

Oh, and what's a geko mount tysonhawke?

I got some extra velcro and have a bit on top and a bit on the side (fnarr). Useful to take away some spare bits to stick on your mate's helmets (again, fnarr). I also have a pole and suction (I just can't help myself).

suction mount is what i meant, couldn't recall the term so went for the brand name. the gecko mounts are really good as suction mounts go though, small, solid and easily and attached

I have the HD170 and will be playing with it on the bash. Got a suction mount so I can clip it to my board for over the nose riding Smile

I got one for Xmas, it's still sat in the box upstairs. I fancy a suction cup to stick it near my front foot binding.
