Straight Cut Dog Box, Solid Motor Mounts, Engine Harmonics
Engine rumble causes vibrations, which are not good for video recording. With the AiM SmartyCam 3 Sport, you'll never again experience that seasick "wave effect" you see when watching in-race videos recorded by a generic camera in a car screaming at 7000 RPM. The AiM SmartyCam 3 Sport is designed for that environment and for those vibrations. "Wave effect" is now just a memory.
Generic action cameras are designed to record videos in many different situations, such as skiing or surfing. But in motorsports they tend to record misleading videos, straightening out the view ahead. When on track, this distorted view makes the corners seem to disappear. So, when you review your track performance those videos are useless because the images are distorted.
Being a camera dedicated to motorsports, AiM SmartyCam 3 Sport features lenses specifically designed to eliminate distortion. The camera is available in two versions: 67º and 84º field-of-view. The former is most suited to in-car, closed-cockpit use. The latter is best used mounted to the exterior of either open- or closed-cockpit cars.
With no driver input, the AiM SmartyCam 3 Sport will automatically overlay all the data you need onto your videos: speed, RPM, lap number, gear shifts and much more. Simply choose the data and the graphic layout you prefer from the huge selection of overlays available.
What Kind of Data?
AiM SmartyCam 3 Sport overlays data from different sources onto your videos. All this info can be overlayed on videos at each single point of the track.
From a GPS: track map and vehicle position, speed, lap- and split-times.
From an Aim logger connected to your ECU: RPM, throttle, engaged gear, acceleration, temperatures, pressures, and additional sensor values (if available).
Smarty Manager 3 Software
With Smarty Manager 3, the AiM SmartyCam 3 Sport dedicated software, you can add your logo and track map to your videos. There's also a wide choice of graphical objects available, allowing you to choose from a list of pre-determined sets with the same layout, or to combine single objects from different sets. Now your videos will be truly “yours” in all details, from data to their graphic design.
