The 4k setting seems to need a faster sd card but the 1080p is more than sufficient quality. Doing the pirates hat race/beer run (road running race) this Sunday in greenside and going to try out the 720p @ 120fps and see how that comes out.
    Share a 43sec segment with us. How was the dumping of the data, simple and dummy proof?

    Nice! Would it be possible to share a short clip at 1080p x 60fps?

    I noticed the shakiness yea. How did you mount to your helmet, mine didn't come with a suction cup and im not sure how half the attachments work to be honest.

    Also been having internet issues at home, I will post sample vids as soon as I can.

    I bought a kit from takealot that had a nice 90 degree adjustable helmet mount in it, same kit is unfortunately now listed as supplier or of stock.

    Will take some pics and send this afternoon.

    This is how I've mounted mine, no turbulence whatsoever.

    Regarding the Sena Prism Tube, I think Bikegear.co.za does them...

    Just as an FYI:

    There are camera units with comms.

    I've had a look at them on Takealot. They had no reviews. Found only a few reviews on Amazon.com, which was mixed. Two people complained about the same problem, video recording that just stopped working... Here's the link https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/cr/B07F73CLRJ/ref=mw_dp_cr

    So not sure if I would buy this...
