I've heard this same info from others, Kenny Bartram was using some as well and said,
"My main complaints with them is that they seem to stop recording randomly at times (at least on my car) and that the sound quality is absolute piss."
AND, I'm likely going to go back to the below setup which was the best I ever used from 05 in the GT car.
"I'm going back to an old Sony MiniDV and Supercircuits lipstick cam like I used on the Audi in 2005(WRX in 05..)"
I'm looking at the GoPro for those fun shots and stuff that's a pain to get w/ other stuff.
I have a Chase cam system currently, two camera w mixer.... and it's been a pain and I've never gotten good footage from it, it always has lines and stuff in it. AND my laptop is such a sad sucker it makes managing a lot of big files a big pain.
See ya'll soon,
#46 in whatever I have the keys to..
Not much you can do on the file size thing, but if you want something that looks good on a TV, the files are going to be big. Chasecam is 1gb/15 minutes of recording time on high resolution. I typically burn events onto a disc once I've got enough to fill a DVD. PPIHC took 2 of em!
