I have had multiple issues with my GoPro this year. We started with a 7 black, but kept having card and battery issues. We upgraded to the 10 black, and it has been worse. The camera stops recording after a few seconds to a few minutes. I’ve been told its anything from overheating to too much vibration. We have used the Odenthal mount for some time. I have now ordered the new odenthal anti-vibration device in hopes that it helps.
Assuming it doesn’t, what other action cameras are people using with success?
Haven’t had a chance to upgrade to newer GoPro models but am surprised to hear of your troubles with the odenthal gopro mount, (was looking to get that soon with better GoPros) I used to run a 7 Silver on a Ram mount and had zero camera issues until the mount snapped and I never found the camera. I picked up a Go Pro Hero Session on fb marketplace and it’s been pretty solid tbh. I just have a pkt mount on the fairing definitely gets the job done even with the vibration
I use an Akaso v50 elite and am reasonably happy with it so far. had it installed with a glued mount to the front panel (a bit in front of the steering wheel). worked fine. I use a corsaro pro data logger, with freeware software video overlay works okay.
don’t have/know GoPro, so cannot compare.
tried mounting it on the radiator, but glue is/was not strong enough. will try some other options to mount (seat strut or similar soon).
Read good things about the Hero 9 and picked one up used this year. So far I really like it and had no issues. This said my last ones were Hero 4. I am curious what cheap amazon models do well for alternate views that isn’t the primary shot you are trying to get.
I have not had any issues with my Hero 10, Enduro Batteries and a Ram mount on the left seat strut. One thing I would recommend is to mount it with a quick release GoPro buckle so you can remove it off the kart in between sessions. When I left it on the kart in the sun, the GoPro had some overheating issues. But, now that it doesnt just sit baking in the sub before a session, it is good to go.
The way I do this is to get the size B Ram ball with the 1/4" bolt and then a tripod to GoPro mount adapter. Use permanent locktite and screw it together. That allows me to keep a short GoPro buckle on the camera and quickly slide it on and remove it.
The issue I have with pretty much every other camera option on the market is that the vibration reduction is terrible compared to GoPro. I get sick watching shaky footage from off brand cameras and cameras like the Cambox.
