    Hey guys!

    Hope you all had a nice Bank Holiday!

    I got a new 720p Action Camera and Car mount the other day to have a play around with!

    It's pretty cool and the build quality is amazing but must say I wasn't that impressed with the video / sound quality. The car suction mount however was awesome!

    Anyway here is a quick test I thought I'd share with y'all....



    Criticisms welcome :D

    Now you can capture the moment you curb your front wheel and save it for posterity!

    All joking aside, that looks like a good toy!

    Wish I had one of these when I went round the nurburgring! Instead I've got it recorded on a mates iPhone... Doesn't look like I'm going that fast...

    Was a lot of sturdy when positioned on the OSF I thought, still take a good video though. Even captured your neighbour waving lol

    Thanks for all the comments. I know a lot about the In Car Cameras so starting to get use to the external action cams!

    Well the suction mount is insanely good. Spent a lot of time researching it. Apparently this company who created the mount sent it to GoPro and they stole the idea and *******ised it.

    When it was stuck on, I was tugging and pulling and couldn't get it off. They do suggest using a tether as a just in case or you can use a nylon cable from fishing or chandlery shops :)

    Got the bug now and gonna get some more cameras in... Including a GP3 :)

    Was looking at a Winy V200HD with both front and rear camerss for around £200. Seems good, with 3 record modes, normal, event and parking.
