If you are looking to capture the experience and thrills of your motorbike rides, then a motorcycle helmet camera is a great place to start. Not only will they help you to capture some amazing footage, but they are very simple to use and you will not be sacrificing your safety when you are using one. A motorbike helmet camera is a fantastic way to keep the excitement going after you have stepped off your bike. Showing off footage from your road trips to your family and friends is great, but it can get embarrassing if the video is poorly shot or shaky. Below I talk about some of the best motorbike helmet cameras that are available on the market at the moment.
Garmin VIRB X Action Camera
This is an affordable helmet camera and is the perfect choice for those who want to capture their rides so that they can watch them later on. This camera can shoot videos in high quality 1080p and comes equipped with an all-glass lens, which works alongside the quality zoom features and high resolution to provide the best shots. The camera has the ability to take quick snapshots as the ability to take photos at ten frames per second. Another great feature that this camera has is an auto-capture function. This means that you can set it to take photographs in 120 seconds intervals, meaning that you will be able to get a collection of cool photographs from your road trip without having to think about taking them yourself. The camera is waterproof, meaning that you do not need to worry about it if it ever starts to pour down with rain. However, one of the coolest things about this camera is that it has a mobile app that you can download to your smartphone.
Sena IOC Pro Bluetooth Headset and Camera
This is a great camera for those who regularly ride with others. If you often ride by yourself, then this is probably not for you as it was created with group riding in mind as it allows riders to communicate with each other. The camera and headset can both access Wi-Fi and can shoot in high definition 1080p at 60 frames a second, or 1440p at 30 frames a second. The camera has the ability to take photographs in bursts, shots, or time lapse, which gives you plenty of room for being creative. The camera lens can move 30 degrees too, allowing more things to be captured. There is also an app available for iOS and smartphone users and there is noise control which will help your videos not be too noisy on the ears. It is waterproof and you can add extra memory (although the memory card is not included). The big plus for this product is its headset, which gives you the chance to connect to four riders at any time. This means that you can share your experiences and thoughts with then as you ride around.
GoPro Hero7 Black
I cannot talk about some of the best bike helmet cameras around and not talk about this one. A great feature of this helmet camera is its ability to stabilize when you are riding - it can actually predict movement and alter the camera to ensure that your footage is smooth and not shaky. There is also a time warping option, which allows you to take stable time lapse footage as you ride around. When recording, the camera will apply HDR automatically as well as noise reduction and tone mapping to ensure that your footage is the best quality possible. It is also waterproof, so you do not have to worry about it when the weather is wet. When you are riding, and you want to change the settings on your camera, you do not have to stop to do so as it has voice recognition. The camera is extremely easy to use and you can also stream directly to Facebook if you so wish.
