I know a few of you are looking at what cameras you can use and I know a lot of us are on tight budgets and can't afford a bunch of GoPro's but I've just trialled this Runcam 5 orange and the first couple shots I'm pretty happy with.
Here's the test footage with some more details about the settings used. Let me know what you think
There is no fancy effects/grading added to ithe video, just some speed effects, as I wanted to see it raw and I didn't even have all my lights. First thoughts are it is great value at $99USD delivered (excludes micro SD card - accepts up to 128gb) and has already survived a fall off the track at Kayem corner (turn 1 and the highest point to fall off from). I'll be using it in Round 2 of 'The Redemption' this weekend so I'll get a much better feel for how it performs after that.
It is super compact (38mmx38mm) and could run in one of the HW cam cars (if I had one - will try to make one though) for that chase cam footage.
Shooting modes range from 4K at 30FPS, 2.7K at 30 & 60FPS, 1080P @30, 60 and 120FPS and less but why would you go lower?
You can see the cam for yourself here if you want to get all the deets :) shop.runcam.com/runcam-5-orange/
