Ordered one - also arrived today is something else we'll try - a solid state recorder and a bullet camera - our race boat doesn't get on with hard drive recorders, a regular rib might?

When we've tested it I'll publish the results!

I am looking into fitting my boat with US police vehicle recording camera system (up to 3 cameras) and voice recording too will also be connected to Globastar satellite phone to send the images out to our HQ.

Intend to put on board RIB soon for testing which are capable of doing speed of more than 50 knoths.

which camera

I fitted the following camera to the a frame of my rib last year, i simply connect this to a camcorder in a watertight bag in the console to record from it, or route it to the e80 if i want to use it as a verry expensive rear view mirror :-)

results are quite good, not too much shake.

I was with the MOD recently.
They had some recording kit being used on a couple of PWC's.
The cam was helmet mounted and it pointed where the rider looked.
This was fed to a solid state recorder.

The pics from it were cracking.

They had their own cam mounted on a Gecko.
I know Gecko do their own cam helmet now.
Not seen how good it is to date.

With the cam fixed to the rib the shots can be limited.
By having on a helmet IMHO its more flexible.

Regards

We trialled the use of helmet or shoulder mounted cams when dealing with entrapment jobs. Images and sound were transmitted to the trauma centre so the surgeons could give advice on treatment.

Great bits of kit but you've got to be really careful about where and when it's switched on.

All the nurses in North Staffs trauma centre know how big my dong is.

You can purchase a really solid ball and socket type mounting system for your digital camcorders too. I believe the product is called RAM mounts. Very solid and not very pricey.
