Product Review: Hedcam Ten80 onboard camera

Hedcam Ten80 onboard camera £167.99

Tester: Michael Neeves

Time used: Six months 

What’s good? It’s an extremely light (39 grams), compact (just 80mm long), durable easy-to-use waterproof ‘bullet’ video camera, which I’ve used to shoot a number of onboard videos while racing this season. The 1080p HD camera comes with lots of different mounting systems, so it can go anywhere on a bike, or helmet, but I use my tried-and-tested lump of ‘black tack’ to fix it anywhere securely in seconds. A built-in laser helps me line up the camera. It has a rechargeable battery and the video files write to a MicroSD card.  

What’s not? Compared with some of the market leaders the clips from the Hedcam aren’t as clear or vibrant and for high-speed onboard videos there’s excessive wind noise.
