Dashcams are becoming more and more popular in cars and trucks in recent years and not without good reason. With costs of vehicle repairs and associated injuries always on the rise, having a video of an incident might provide crucial evidence in determining fault in the event of a crash.
Finding dashcams for a car or truck is rather easy with a lot of choices available at various price points. Motorcycle camera systems, however, are much fewer in number. This is likely due to two factors:
- Motorcycles require more durable systems that can cope with the elements as at least some parts, the cameras, for instance, will be exposed to the great outdoors.
- Motorcycles are greatly outnumbered by cars and trucks (in the United States anyway) making the potential market for motorcycle specific devices much smaller.
These factors have lead to very few systems available that will work for the motorcyclist. There are several inexpensive systems on eBay and Amazon that hover around the $100.00 (USD) mark and then there are systems such as the Innovv K1 that run over $250.00 which we reviewed back in 2015. (The new Innovv K3 system currently available runs over $330.00!)
While I haven’t handled the very inexpensive systems the price makes me wonder about their quality to the point where I wouldn’t be willing to risk time and money on them. Recently, a thread on the popular adventure riding website Adventure Rider popped up with someone mentioning a new system he just purchased called the Halocam M1. This system cost under $200.00 and his opinion was that the system performed well considering the price.
Of course, I had to find out for myself what this system was all about. Let’s all have a look.
