    Default Z Autocrossing with new camera- GoPro Hero Wide

    • Z Autocrossing with new camera- GoPro Hero Wide
    • Just bought the GoPro Hero Wide motorsport camera and used it while autocrossing one of my Zs. For the money the camera performed really well.
      The video link is my worst yet most fun run. I know I am not suppose to eat a cone and steer clear of sand pits but hey it added excitement.

      Does anyone else have experience using this camera?
      Enjoy Z Ride!

    Ya got any pix of where/how the camera is mounted? It looks very low and centered, like in the front grill or valance.

    I mounted the 3m clip in the grill area just to the right from the center of the car.
    Next time I plan to use the large suction cup set that came with the camera and put it either on the top of the windshield or the back glass.

    After that I need to try the interior...........for some reason I don't have time to look at the speedo....

    I've wanted one of those cameras for a while now. Glad to know they are decent!

    For the money I have been impressed so far. Participated in a BMW group's autocross locally a few weeks ago. Thought I would try the camera in a new location...on my windshield. I accidently hit my wiper controller and the camera flew off the car. No doubt a humorous moment for those watching.
    The camera survived but didn't get a video. At least the times ranged from 37-55 sec so I was competitive with 45. Not a wasted day. Anyway I will enjoy trying for a video again next time.
