Depending on the size of the SD card that you use in the camera you should be able to record up to forty minutes of footage on one card.

It is advisable to check how much filming you will be able to do on the size of the memory card that you are using before you set off as you won’t want to miss any of the action because the camera has not been filming for as long as you thought it would.

Coleman Action Camera Features

The camera is waterproof and dust proof. Although the waterproof feature will probably not be needed if you are riding a motorcycle, the fact that it is dust proof can be very useful if you are riding off road on a dusty surface as it means the camera will stay protected. The casing that provides this protection can make the audio a little muffled but this feature means that there is no compromise on the quality of the footage.

This allows you to capture video from a number of different viewpoints, depending where it is positioned on the helmet. You may need a little experimentation to discover which point on the helmet gives you the kind of view that you want. By riding on different types of roads and placing the camera in different positions you should soon be able to learn how the camera needs to be set up to record the footage that you want. If nothing else it is a good excuse to get out on your bike.

Off roading on a motorcycle may not be something that you get to do too often, unless you have access to some private land. Most people take part in experience days to try their hand at off roading. Having a recording of this day can act as a keepsake and this camera is ideal for this type of recording as it can be attached directly to your helmet. It is always worth checking with the center that they will allow you to record as you are riding.
