More and more motorbike riders are using some form of action camera as they ride. Whether it’s to capture the incredible scenery on a tour, protect against unfair blame in an accident or document a personal best lap time at a trackday, there’s an option for you.
We’ve hand-picked some of the best helmet cameras from the MCN Shop and Amazon to find the right one for you.
SENA 10C Combination Bluetooth Intercom & Camera – around £348
A very impressive piece of kit. The Sena 10C Combination Bluetooth Intercom and 1080p full HD camera is on the higher end of some people's budgets, but with good reason.
This camera is not only capable of full HD video and two hours recording time, but also allows you to listen to FM radio or connect your smartphone to it and listen to your own music whilst riding.
What's more, this kit can also be paired directly with a sat-nav for audible instructions whilst riding - to help reduce distraction.
So, not only is it a way to record video footage whilst riding, but it also offers a whole new way to enjoy your trip - both our customers and MCN think it’s money well spent.
GoPro HERO7 Action Camera – around £379
The GoPro brand has become synonymous with action cameras in the way that Hoover is with vacuum cleaners or Jacuzzi is with hot-tubs.
Their latest, the HERO7 is a well-built, durable, 4K Ultra HD camera that can be easily mounted to a motorcycle helmet, or bike.
It includes voice control, is fully waterproof (up to 10m) and includes advanced video stabilisation - to ensure you capture the best quality footage whilst riding.
With in-built GPS, you can track your speed, distance and more and then add performance stickers to your videos with the GoPro app before you upload your video.
