Since I've already liked such on and in two-track vehicles, motorbiker gear also includes a camera. As one might noticed it on relevant pictures, there's a camera fastened on the handlebar's middle, which result gotten from the following decisions:
- onboard camera, anytime you watch the movies back, you'd be just as if you were in the driver's seat again
- symmetrical images
- solid fastening, the chances of blurred images are low
- the smoked bike windshield is just a perfect solution against sparkling bright sunshine: saves the pictures awesomely against the burnout with contrast yet not making everything too dark. See for example Garbolc:
How did I get here, my deductive reasoning were as per below:
- other parts of the bike: I haven't seen reasons to use such, unsure if it makes sense for travelling
- top of the helmet: I never liked the clown's hat solution at the first place, looks stupid, the recording angle is unnatural and the chances of blurring is constantly high
- left or right side of the helmet: not yet but lefthand side is reserved for an intercom, the righthand side is neither likeable: 50% limited angle of view, re-watching the side of the helmet isn't that fascinating. Furthermore I neither like the constantly moving helmet's dynamic picture art.
- jaw/chin part of the helmet: looks one step less stupid than the clown's hat, but still. Additionally if you don't fasten the camera upside down (extra job to later flip back the videos horizontally), it'll record only the bottom part of the handlebar and the petrol tank.
- body strap: the least, but still very stupid-looking solution. I liked the few occasions when I played with it - mainly on scooters - but on the long run, during travelling I don't think it could work. On the other hand, after the above handlebar way, this is the second best and stable position.
- back of the helmet: appeared on the HJC picture, it works and is good - should you want to record backwards. It has a special trick funnily enough, because when I used it, for some unexplicable and not understandable reasons 100% of all the gentleman and gentlewoman drivers continuously and with constant paying attention respected the following distance.
The punchline? Even if the camera wasn't even on.
