All this is in the most robust and reliable system ever. In its new version, the electronics/mechanics have been further improved, and SmartyCam HD is now even easier to manage.

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.

out using the keyboard if you prefer.
No "wave effect" with the CMOS sensor and improved video quality
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.
Moreover, the lenses with different HFOV's allow a tailor-made
framing in all kind of vehicles.
High-quality small-size video files
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
one-hour recording takes 4GB (high quality),
2GB (normal) or 1,5GB (low). Files are stored
on SD cards (not included in the box):
with current SD cards reaching
128GB capacity, you can record more than
30 hours of high-quality videos without changing the card.systems.
