Thread: Camera choices

  1. #1

    Camera choices

    As we are approaching the deadline for having functional cameras, I thought it'd be useful for folks to share the solution they're using. So...what camera do you have, what do you like/don't like and if you had to buy now would you get the same thing?

    I was looking at the fly 360. Would it be possible to have NASA looking to possibly getting discounts? Takes video in 360 all the time. Way cool

    I know it's expensive, but maybe NASA could get them on board?
    Way better then GoPro! I have a GoPro 3 black and Silver and they are nothing but trouble!

    The fly 360 video playback is really weird, I don't like it. My Gopro stopped being finicky when I reformatted the card. I'm open minded to a new rear camera, but my Gopro3 has treated me well so far so I may get the session as it's only $200.

    I was very pleased with the Garmin Virb I tried this past weekend but didn't find time to really play with it. I got the base model with no Wifi and GPS so there wasn't much else to play with anyways; I also got the remote that has a feedback LED (flashes red while recording) so no guessing as to whether or not you are live:

    I will be sending it back to get the Garmin Virb Elite for $37 more that has built in wifi and GPS. It has GPS based recording profiles so I don't have to manually hit the record button, and can also overlay data from external sensors if you want to mess with that. Going for the auto record and wifi as the SD card is inside the unit behind the battery so I'd like to avoid having to take it apart to get data every time.

    GoPro 4 here. Does the job but you MUST be diligent about dumping the memory card each day and charging it between sessions. I have the stuff to hardwire it but haven't yet.

    my $50 dash cam did well, set it and forget it, it just worked, no messing with hitting record etc, when it gets full it just overwrites the old stuff.

    What's with the weird skips? Does it do like the GoPro and cut the vids off at a certain length forcing you to join them back together?

    Yeah, I need to play with the settings to make the clips longer
