Using the Muvi on my Bike
Back at Christmas 2010 I got a Veho VCC-003 Muvi Micro DV Camcorder from Beth. It's a tiny little camera which films 640x480 at 25fps AVI onto a micro SD card. Since then I've mainly used it clipped to my jacket while walking in Milton Country Park after that nasty incident with Beth and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier which left me a bit paranoid for a while.
But last summer I put a mount on my bike helmet and I used it on 31st August while cycling to and from Tesco in Milton. On the video going there the camera was a bit tipped down so you couldn't see as much as I'd have liked but coming back was much better so I topped and tailed that one to get rid of the bits where I'm putting on and taking off the helmet and here it is.
I think it does a pretty good job: it copes pretty well with changing light levels, you can see where I'm looking, and you can even see the shadow cast by the camera on the helmet if you look very carefully.
