Leading CCTV and surveillance vendor Storage Options, has launched an innovative new bike camera to help mountain bikers, BMX bandits and thrill seekers record their latest flicks and tricks.
BikeCam has dual functionality as a cycle specialist video camera and as a front light for a bike with its integrated bright, LED light making it perfect for commuting, mountain biking or BMXing. Bike fans can record their commutes, favourite routes or tricks and upload them quickly and share them with their friends via its USB cable.
The product has been specifically designed for use on the move to record at a 720×480 resolution and can also be used to take still images. Its quick release mounting makes it easy to attach to either helmets or handlebars and its LED lights enable it to be used as an auxiliary light when night riding. Weighing in at a meager 85g, the rider will barely notice it as they race down hill.
Paul Evison, Storage Options Marketing Manager explains the thought process behind the new camera: “We have launched a number of exciting new camera based products this year but this one really is special as it provides bikers with a useful record of everything they do. People cycle for many different reasons – it’s cheap, it’s better for the environment and it’s great for their health. Whether people cycle for fun or a daily commute, this product is useful in both situations. For mountain bikers and BMX tricksters, we hope this new product will help them to capture those special moments and preserve them for years to come. Commuters often have a daily battle for road space with much larger vehicles than their bikes, and if anything was to occur that required a recording, BikeCam could deliver with hard evidence. ”
BikeCam comes with a free 4GB Micro SD memory card that provides enough memory to record up to one hour of biking footage. If that isn’t enough memory a user can upgrade it to a 16GB card that offers up to 4 hours of video footage. All of the material is recorded in an AVI format at a rate of 30 frames per second.
The camera’s rechargeable battery will provide power for up to five hours of recording time or ten hours of LED usage on one single charge.
Storage Options has also recently launched Road Cam for car drivers as well. This windscreen-mounted camera also includes 4Gb of storage for recording at the front of the vehicle. An in-car power adaptor and simple suction mount make recording whilst driving simple.
Paul Evison adds: “Many of us encounter examples of bad driving on almost a daily basis. But if you are unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, you could be stuck with a nasty legal dispute. Both of these new products give power back to the consumer and mean you can record what happened to you whether on your bike or in your car.”
BikeCam comes complete with built-in front LED light and rechargeable battery, helmet mounting, quick-release handlebar mount, USB cable, 4GB micro SD card, power adapter/charger and clearly-worded, comprehensive manual, written in plain English to get you up and running as quickly and easily as possible.
As with all Storage Options products, these devices are supplied with clearly-written and annotated manuals and are backed by a local-rate technical support phone line serviced by experts based in the UK. Sample videos from both the BikeCam and Road Cam are available now on the Storage Options YouTube Channel.
