AIM Smartycam HD
AIM recently released an HD version of their Smartycam integrated data camera. The Smartycam HD may not be a true HD camera as it's limited to 720p resolution but it is plenty for YouTube use and a vast improvement over the older 480p version...
If you already own an AIM data logging system, the Smartycam HD can be integrated like the previous model but, with its built in accelerometers and GPS, it can also work as a standalone system.
While they will not give you the same resolution as a GoPro and is more than twice the price, the SmartycamHD does overlay data onto the video in real time saving precious time in coaching sessions for example. As in the previous model overlayed graphics can be easily customized via software.
Of course, we like that in AIM's clips, you can catch glimpses of the Axis GT3 at Sebring!..
