The latest version of the SmartyCam HD, the SmartyCam 3 Corsa improves on the well known design with an improved Global Shutter, and up to 60 pfs. Unlike a traditional action camera that has been designed for everything from jumping out of airplanes, to surfing killer waves, the SmartyCam HD has been engineered by motorsports enthusiasts who spend their lives at the track. The narrow angle lens is perfect for mounting in sedans and sports cars, with a frame that fits just within the A-pillars.
The SmartyCam 3 Corsa features a narrow (67°) HFOV lens that is perfect for interior mounting in closed-roof cockpits. The frame fits perfectly within the vehicles A-pillars when mounted behind the driver on the roll-bar. A Wide (84°) HFOV lens is also available separately and is ideal for mounting outside the car, as in open-roof, formula racers, and allows for a larger view of the track. With either model, the proprietary lens was developed exclusively for motorsports. Ever notice how generic action-cameras make nearby objects look far away, making it near impossible to determine if a track is straight or curved? The telecentric lens has six elements to help reduce this distortion. Add to this a global-shutter CMOS sensor that helps reduce that sickening wave effect caused by track and engine vibrations and you get truly track oriented video!
Just like the original AIM SmartyCam HD, the SmartyCam 3 Corsa automatically overlays all of your essential track data: speed, RPM, lap-number, gearshifts, and much more. With the huge selection of overlay layouts, you can fully customize your track experience to watch over and over again. Capable of operating as a standalone unit (optional GPS antenna required), the SmartyCam is also fully optimized to work with your existing AIM Data system. Simply plug it in with the CAN-cable and instantly access all of your vehicle information.
And about that video quality – how’s 1920×1080 pixels at 60 fps sound? Such high quality usually comes at the price of memory card space. Not in the SmartyCam 3. Using H264 compression, a 1-hour recording uses as little as 1.5GB (4GB with high-quality setting). Compatible with SD memory cards as large as 2TB, you’ll never miss a race! Auto stop-start, and Auto-Off capabilities help make sure your data-space and battery life aren’t wasted.
