Video Camera Reviews


Drift X170 Video Camera Review The Drift X170 has everything going for it…except HD. Too bad, because the form factor, ease of use and the live view color LCD menu screen makes everything else seem so yesterday. We can only hope that Drift will release an HD version soon. In Part 1 of this two-part comparison, I …

VholdR Contour HD Video Camera Review I like the new VholdR ContourHD version of the VholdR video camera much better than the original. It’s easy to use (ditto for the original) and the HD video is surprisingly good — much better than I expected. I can pick a few nits, especially with the QuickTime .mov …

A Wide Angle Faux HD Version of the GoPro What’s not to like?  A 170-degree wide angle lens, 5-megapixel wearable or vehicle mountable camera. Extremely simple to configure and use.

Be happy, for the price, and for what you get, it cannot be beaten, at least for now. Be prepared, for never-ending comments about its size, look and functionality. While not …

The Original VholdR Action Cam A nice motorcycle video camera with a useful form factor, but now surpassed by more advanced cameras. I’m not sure when the phrase “camcorder” supplanted “videocam”, which is a contraction of “video camera”. But VholdR calls this device a “wearable camcorder”, so there you have it. Wearable is probably stretching …

Gorillapod Flexible Camera Tripod I’ll bet you’re wondering why in the world webBikeWorld has a review on a miniature tripod? What does this contraption have to do with motorcycles?  Stay with me here, because I’m about explain. Neither my wife nor I are what you would call true camera buffs, but we do take a …
