This model of SmartyCam has been replaced by the much improved SmartyCam GP HD Rev 2.2.
SmartyCam GP HD is a quite versatile system, easy to install on cars, bikes, karts: robust and reliable, it has been engineered to withstand the extreme working conditions typical of motorsports.
SmartyCam GP HD automatically overlays on videos all the data you need: speed, RPM, lap number, gear shifts and much more. Simply choose the data and the graphic layout you prefer in the huge selection of overlays available.
The SmartyCam GP HD can be switched on/off automatically by the logger it is connected to: simply decide after what period of non-activity the camera will have to switch-off. Both operations can also be carried out using the keyboard, if you prefer.
Recording can also be started/stopped automatically or via keyboard: the camera will start recording when the speed or RPM threshold is exceeded. You simply decide how long after dropping below the selected threshold the video will automatically stop.
SmartyCam GP 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.
You can choose among three video file quality levels: one-hour recording takes 4GB (high quality), 2GB (normal) or 1,5GB (low). Files are stored on SD cards: with current SD cards reaching 128GB capacity, you can record more than 30 hours of high-quality videos without changing the card.
The small bullet size (24 diam x 73.5 mm) and light weight (just 55 g) make SmartyCam GP HD easy to install inside or outside your car/bike. To make installation even easier, a wide range of brackets.
We like using the SmartyCam GP for rearview recording, as it still allows us to easily access the memory card. Endurance racers might also like this feature, as they can swap video cards during pit stops with recorder located near a window.
