If you have a motorcycle then the chances are that you want to show off to your friends with cool, action like, videos of you and your motorcycle. Let those fu…ers that use to bully you in primary school see what a macho you have become and most importantly show your ex that you are cool, you can ride! Not like that idiot she’s now going out with…..Anyway…I got distracted. So. Action cameras. The most popular action camera out there is of course GoPro. I own one and I am relatively happy with it. I am saying relatively because, in my humble opinion (aka eejit who doesnt have a clue), the battery on the GoPro sucks big time. I have a GoPro Hero+ and, without having the remote control or the viewfinder on and with the WiFi switched off, the battery on that thing would not last longer than 40-45min. So many shots missed because of the battery. Aggrr…But hey. I have recently found a new action camera. TomTom Bandit. For those living in UK, remember TomTom? The GPS navigation device that could not find any address and would get you lost in no time?! I kid you not. I used one on a trip through Europe and ended up in Ukraine. But hey. That was like a century ago. A lot change since. TomTom has recently came up on the market with an action cam and you know what? They did an amazing job!!
The camera is well built, it comes with loads of accessories but most importantly, the battery last forever.
Forever = 3 hours of constant shooting at 1080dpi @ 30fps.
That is WOW. The image quality is not as good as the GoPro but the difference is negligible in my opinion. It comes with a built in GPS that gives you the ability to record your speed, locations and g-force. Now you can show your friends what a man you are and how you reached 30km/h…WOW! 🙂
I’ve posted a quick video sample below. Once again, I am very pleased with it and I highly recommend this camera to anyone looking to purchase an action camera.
Enjoy it. Braaaap!
