I'm looking for a nice simple, easy to operate camera/camcorder.

I want something i can take out of my tankbag to shoot a short video or take a snapshot while on the move, with gloved left hand.

Obviously only on those quiet times.

Pal of mine, who is far more "technical" than me has suggested this.

Anyone have any info or maybe suggest an alternative?

hi,

lidil`s have a toshiba one from Monday, looks good for the price, never used a flip one think Wheelie`s your man:thumbright:.

I use a my old jvc minidv on the bike and my Fuji in the tankbag , but wouldnt want to use either hand held.

The jvc is used with a RAM mount and I just click record then ride:p.

do know that not many camcorders like engine vibrations though, HD etc but think the sd card variety are okay for short filming sessions.

I've got one with a waterproof case mounted on my crf, it's ok but I think it suffers a bit from the mount resonating, I've not got round to weighting and bracing it yet, I don't regret choosing it but Wheelie's probably the man to ask as he's got some of the footage to compare with other cameras.

looks good on paper,

But as we all ride with our helmets pointed slightly down/forward i think all you got was the clocks etc as against mounted ont he top off the helmet.

This looks far better than the OREGON Action Cam I got a couple of years ago. I just wonder if it will suffer from picture wave as a lot of this type of camcorders do. I'd get one if I can be sure that the picture is of a good quality (well reasonable) and does not wave. My Cannon Powershot does good movie but is not really user friendly on a bike. Any feedback will be appreciated by all I'm sure.

The Sanyo xacti waterproof is my camera of choice. The new HD one is just £205 on Amazon right now.

Will sit on handlebar ram mount and even on crash bar ram mounts and its built in anti-wobble seriously does cut it out - Stuart's camera had a lot of wobble when I got to look at the footage.

In terms of using it. once you have it turned on, just flicking the screen close puts it to sleep. Flicking it up again restarts it and one button starts it filming.
