I'm using a GoPro Hero5 Session, due to it's size and quality. And it's a gopro, enough said really. It's waterproof, can take a bit beating, it's a good little camera. The reason I mention size, is because I really don't want a camera at the side of the helmet. It causes a drag at higher speeds, and that's a no no for me.. Hence my set up in the photo.
Two main negative things thou. It's only waterproof when it's sealed off. To access the charging port and memory card you have to open a little tab, and by doing that it's not waterproof anymore. So charging while it's raining isn't an option.
And that brings me to nr.2, the battery. It has a life time of around 1hour 45 min. It ain't much, at all.. And the battery can't be taken out and swapped. You have to charge it. So I ride around with a battery pack on longer trips to I can charge while I'm riding.
