Radical SR3 @ Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch 4.0 Mile Config
My second weekend driving the Radical... starting to get comfortable and push the car closer to its limits. The Smartycam's GPS wasn't picking up start/finish, but my alternate lap time gave me a lap time of 2:41.691.

SmartyCam HD - Asia Formula Renault at Zhuhai
More info: http://www.grid-motorsport.co/products/smartycam-hd-camera-designed-for-mot orsport SmartyCamHD - Asia Formula Renault at Zhuhai Camera Designed for Motorsport Why go on track with a generic action-camera? SmartyCam HD has been designed for motorsports, by people exactly like you, who have spent their life on the track. SmartyCam HD was designed with a single purpose: providing great videos that include all the technical information that will help you improve your performance. All this comes in the most robust and reliable system ever. Real Time Data Overlay on Video SmartyCam HD automatically overlays on videos all the data you need: speed, RPM, lap number, gear shifts and much more. Simply choose the data and the graphic layout you prefer in the huge selection of overlays available. Automatic Start/Stop You are on the starting grid, ready to sprint, your adrenaline reaching the climax: the last thing you can worry about is... switching on the camera. You have other things to worry about. SmartyCam HD is aware of that. That is why it switches on/off automatically and starts/stops recording the same way. Global Shutter CMOS Sensor Engine rumble causes vibrations, which are not a good thing for video recording. Never again will you experience that seasick "wave effect" you get when watching videos recorded by a generic camera, when the car rolls at 7000 RPM. SmartyCam HD has been designed for that environment and for those vibrations. "Wave effect" is just a memory. Proprietary Lenses Designed for Motorsports A lens specifically designed for motorsports must be robust, must be able to work when the engine rolls 100 times per second, and have good resolution and brightness. But above all a lens designed for motorsports must reduce distortion, which is a typical problem of lenses used by generic action-cameras: objects placed at ten meters' distance look very far, making it impossible to accurately determine whether the track is straight or curved. SmartyCam HD telecentric lens with six elements reduces distortion to the minimum and will withstand track vibrations for years. Front Mount Color TFT Display for In-car Installation On-board cameras are to be installed inside the car. Where should the display be placed to check the correct position of the camera? The SmartyCam HD 128x128 pixel TFT color display is on the front, not on rear - where general cameras place the viewfinder. High-quality Small-size video files HD cameras competition is focused on the highest pixel number. The result is that their video files are far too large, taking too much memory. SmartyCam HD videos have the same quality as other HD cameras but their files are smaller because the H264 compression system parameters have been optimized to a perfect balance between video quality and file size. You can choose among three video file quality levels: one-hour recording takes 4GB (high quality), 2GB (normal) or 1,5GB (low). Files are stored on SD cards: with current SD cards reaching 128GB capacity, you can record more than 30 hours of high-quality videos without changing the card. Designed to Withstand Extreme On-track Working Conditions An on-board camera designed for motorsports must guarantee great resistance against the extreme working conditions typical of track racing and against the most adverse weather, such as: strong and prolonged vibrations, storms, continuous rain, and extreme high and low temperatures. That is why SmartyCam HD is made in machinery molded aluminum, just like many competition car parts. Compact, Handy and Easy to Install Its small size (87x63x48mm) and light weight (just 250g) make SmartyCam HD easy to install inside your car or on your bike.
