The Motorsports HERO sport camera, as put by the manufacturer, is the HD sport camera that was developed for the consumer and tested by the professionals. The HERO line boasts as being the world’s most advanced line of full HD 1080p, waterproof, sport cameras designed to be used during motorsports.
It offers amazing clarity and stability and impact-resistant housing. The Motorsports HERO sport camera shoots video or pictures from a POV perspective. It can be mounted on the user’s body, helmet, car, motorcycle, or other equipment.
Motorsports HERO sport cameras were designed specifically for motorcyclists, auto sports, and other power sports activities. It offers professional and superior HD quality. It offers the option of filming in slow-motion cinema (720p), maximum wide angle (960p), and true HD video (1080p). It also offers a 170 degree wide-angle lens option. The slow-motion option takes either 30 or 60 frames per second.
The superior image and video color quality is provided by leading DSP technology. This also provides the fastest automatic exposure adjustment of any wearable camera on the market. The exceptional sound quality is due to the automatic gain control, which ensures the reduction of wind noise at high speeds. The camera adjusts to all of these setting automatically; there is no switching back and forth. The Motorsports HERO is perfect for in-car filming. There are several mounts included with the sport camera to give the user the ability to change sport camera positions on the car quickly and easily.
A great feature to the Motorsports HERO is the option to set the camera to “automatic photo-take” mode. The camera becomes hands-free once this option is set. Users can take pictures automatically at intervals of 2, 5, 10, 30, and 60 seconds apart.
