The Bullet Camera Designed Specifically For Motorsports
The new SmartyCam GP HD Rev 2.2 was designed with the single purpose: giving racers and track-day drivers fantastic high-definition, high-frame-rate videos with all driving data overlayed to help improve your performance. This camera absolutely excels at that! It's the perfect camera for your track day car, race car, race bike or whatever you drive, part of a flexible, expandable system that's easy to install on any kind of vehicle. The SmartyCam GP HD is robust, reliable and has been engineered to withstand the extreme working conditions typical of motorsports.

- Camera connector is a more robust coaxial cable
- Directly compatible with the GPS08 Module
- Increased battery capacity
- New, more powerful and flexible internal processor
- Connections are stronger and more protected from electromagnetic noise.

REAL-TIME DATA OVERLAY
The SmartyCam GP HD Rev 2.2 overlays all the data you need from different sources. From GPS (with the optional GPS08), you get track map, vehicle position and speed, lap-times and split-times. Connected directly to your ECU, your SmartyCam GP HD gathers RPM, throttle, gear, acceleration, temperature, pressures as well as data from additional optional AiM sensors. All this info can be overlayed on your videos (and the format can be changed at different points in the video) for incredible post-race analysis and professional-looking presentation. You can even put videos from any SmartyCam side-by-side to compare laps.
You're on the starting grid, ready to sprint, focused on the start. The last thing you want to worry about is switching on your camera. That's why the SmartyCam GP HD can be switched on/off automatically by the logger it's connected to. Recording can be started automatically when a speed or RPM threshold is reached. You decide how long after dropping below the selected threshold the video will automatically stop.
CMOS SENSOR DESIGNED FOR RACING
Never again will you experience that seasick "wave effect" you get watching videos recorded by a generic sports camera. There is no wave effect with the SmartyCam GP HD's new CMOS sensor and improved video filtering. So when you're at 140 MPH and 8000 RPM, your SmartyCam is designed for that environment and those vibrations. The wave effect is just a memory. The new CMOS also significantly improves image quality in low-light conditions, reducing video noise to a minimum.
PROPRIETARY LENSES DESIGNED FOR MOTORSPORTS
Generic action cameras are designed for use in many different situations from hiking to skiing to surfing, but in a race car their inherent design compromises result in misleading videos. They straighten out the view ahead when on track, making the corners simply disappear. When you want to review your track performance or share the experience, those videos are useless because the images are distorted. The SmartyCam GP HD was designed from the ground up for motorsports, featuring lenses specifically designed to avoid distortion.
The Narrow Angle lens (67° HFOV) is generally preferred for closed-roof cars, as it "sees" the track just within the windshield/A-pillars, reducing that unpleasant black border typical of generic cameras.
The Wide Angle lens (84° HFOV) is specific to open formula cars and kart use, where it captures a broader, undistorted view of the track similar to what the driver sees.
Frail things have a bad time on track. An on-board camera designed for motorsports must guarantee great resistance to the extreme working conditions typical of the race track. That includes the most adverse weather, strong and prolonged vibrations, and extreme high and low temperatures. That's why SmartyCam GP HD is made in machinery-molded aluminum, just like many competition car parts.
