That's just recorded straight on to my 6 year old JVC camcorder that uses 6 year old MiniDV tapes. :thumbup (Time for some new tapes me thinks)

I thought it was excellent quality footage considering the vintage equipment I was using.

Not too sure on the microphone placement though, it kind of distorts a little and you lose the full effect of the Hooked air box and the Gianelli exhaust roar.

More experiments in this area are needed, if you know what I mean. :devious

I can never seem to get the microphone in the right place either, i always come back with great vid footage but distorted sound ... keep us posted ..
would be interested when you find the ideal setup ...:thumbup

I started with the microphone at the rear and am slowly moving it around the bike, at the moment it's under the riders seat.

Going to move it up front later today to see if I can improve the sound quality, if this fails then I may have to look at upgrading the microphone. (Yes this is just an excuse to ride the bike all the time LOL)

I think I read that you can improve the sound by using an RCA coupler and a special lead that inputs sound to both channels of the camcorder. (If I can actually be arsed that is LOL)

I have the Audio splitter cable and RCA connections but it didnt seem to make much difference ... :dunno
I,m also tempted by this wireless setup camera and DVR (takes 32GB SDCARD)
£99 from Dogcam

Some real clear footage there mate very nice. Your mount is very stable as well as I can't see any shake, rattle or roll on there. Make sure it's mounted for the may rideout in Derbyshire next year dude.

I must admit I was quite impressed with the quality too, the camera is a Dogcam Pro 520 and I have permanently mounted it to the bike so I'm all ready to go for next year. :thumbup

As it's forward facing I won't be able to publish the footage on You Tube for all to see so if anyone wants to see the footage they will have to PM me for the link.

That gay bloke as you put it was me mate. :puke

Yeah, it's a tight squeeze down the side of the house, that damn gas meter box is a pain in the arse too, anyone local gas registered and fancies moving or fitting a slim design meter for me? :roll

Looking forward to the meet up next April - May, gonna start stocking up on MiniDV tapes so I can get a few hours of footage stored. The tapes I am using at the moment are 5 years old at least and I think they have had their day.
