HDD Camcorder on a bike, anyone use one.

I bought a hard disk drive camcorder so I could take some track video. I mounted it up today ran up the street and back. I think the hard drive is F'ed now. I was not sure if it could handle the vibration when I bought it, I guess it cant. So has anyone else used a hard drive camera on their bike. If not I guess my advice is dont do it.

No it is this one, JVC makes it.

http://www.jvc.com/product.jsp?model...hId=119&page=1

The camera is only days old, and this was the first time I used it, but I did test it and play with it before hand so I know it did work. I did not buy the warrenty, however I do have until the 26th to buy it. I will feel like a lowlife buying the warrenty after I have already broke it.

Most HDDs will not handle the vibration. They are spinning at 7200+RPM and then the plates get slammed into the wipers. It isn't good and will kill over in no time.

Mini DV or Hi8 is the best you can hope to use. I have a couple of mini DV cams for the trackdays and they only last about a season if you are lucky. The vibration is brutal even though it dosen't show in the picture. Use lots of fresh tape, after the second or maybe third use the camera has a hard time keeping a constant picture recorded. Again this will not show on the picture, but when you go to upload to your computer it will show the dropped frames and the program will want to cut it into 1-3 second segments.

What type of HDD does it use? There are solid state (flash) hard drives but they do not offer the same capacity and might cost a bit more.

The sony miniDV's are great for resisting vibrations, high shocks, and humidity. While the jvcs and others might be cheaper, sony's are just a workhorse. Just got to remember to go back every now and then and tighten all the screws, cuz the vibrations will knock em loose.

If you want good quality recordings do not reuse your tapes, you'll be lucky if you even get the 3 times out of em, and try to stick with sony tapes if you use a sony camcorder, they do perform better than mixing them.

I've got a 30 gig everio JVC hard drive cam that I've been bugging my friend to let me borrow his tank mount to try on the bike, but I've heard that they don't do too well... dunno, mine has the hard drive protection, so it shouldn't mess it up (just turn it off) but I too have the extended warranty bullshit so I'll throw that through circuit city's front window and get a new one if anything happens to it as a result.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM....... Surprised that camera stayed on when he low sided.

I already have the "bullet style" camera that I can mount where ever, just need the recorder and what not.

Anyone else use a MiniDV or Hi8 camcorder??
