Roadhawk / Dogcam Ride+ Bullet camera, Another little test ride!

How Do all ;-)

This is another little test video using a Roadhawk / Dogcam Ride+ Bullet camera.
its just a mish mash of snippets from Sunday's ride to the Chilterns with Graham Williams.
I used the external camera battery to extend the recording time to 5.5 hours'ish,
due to the time length of the ride lots of the footage from the beginning was overwritten (camera is using a 32mb micro SD card) and also the last hour or two of the ride were not recorded due to lack of battery life.
I only plan to use this camera for commuting so time and space are not a problem!
i am very happy with the quality of this tiny camera though maybe the brightness setting need tweaking a little which can all be done with the cameras software.

Thanks for watching!
Take care,
Barry ;-)

Roadhawk / Dogcam Ride+ Bullet camera, test ride!

How Do all ;-)

This is a test video using a Roadhawk / Dogcam Ride+ Bullet camera.
After being hit in the face with a bottle shaped projectile hurled from an oncoming car (full fizzy pop bottle I might add) I decided a black box type camera with loop recording and date/time stamp would be a good idea.
The pop bottle was open and the fizzy liquid (thankfully not piss this time) temporarily blinded me so I was unable to react quick enough to see a number plate, hopefully the camera will be able to help me out here, and give me a leg to stand on should I have cause to prosecute.

The camera is mounted on top of my helmet, and I rode to work in daylight and home in darkness to get an idea of how good the camera is in different conditions.

Thank you for watching.
Take care,
Barry ;-)

A Pineapple Knot Variation. Links Fixed!

How Do All ;-)

Just a quickie!
I was unaware that the links to the pdf  file for the below Help Tutorial were broken and the file was no longer where it was stored, 
I have now uploaded the pdf to my Google Drive and the links on my Tutorials and Help page all work again
Sorry to anyone that tried the links and found nothing of any help! And thank you to Graham for pointing this out to me :-)

I copied the tutorial information here to save you having to open yet another window :-D

Thank you for looking.
Take care,
Barry ;-)
