In motorsports onboard-video systems are spreading like mosquitoes in the swamp. In conjunction with the data overlay they are a real personal coach. Then, when running the quality of the films in HD resolution on the screen, the analysis of the drive becomes a real pleasure.

AiM came 2009 with the first generation of the SmartyCam as worldwide the first Camcorder with data-overlay on the market and has incorporated the therewith gained experience into the follow-up SmartyCam HD. Concrete this means, that next to the gigantic picture quality, also the handling has been conspicuously improved: the fiddly µSD-card had to make way for a real SD-card and is now applied over the side, likewise the USB-cable. The 1.45” TFT screen and the buttons aren’t placed on the topside anymore, but on the front and complete procedures in the SmartyCam itself only need a split of the time as the predecessor. And the plastic housing has been exchanged to a solid aluminum housing.

The picture quality has been improved among others through the insert of a new, six-part telecentric lens, by what the action-cameras typical distortions outside of the picture center at the SmartyCam HD do not exist. Also the often seen, disturbing wave-effect at high engine speed belongs to the past through an innovative picture sensor.

With the SmartyCam HD films are recorded in 1280 x 700 pixels @ 30, 25 or 15 fps and in real-time  information like acceleration, gas pedal position, brake pressure, lap time, track position, rpm, speed (example see below) are integrated in the film. Thus you can e.g. compare easily the braking points of a teammate with your own or impress friends with fascinating racing action.

SmartyCam HD can be used alone with a GPS or in conjunction with an AIM-system (ECU-Bridge, MyChron4, evo4, MXL). Is a respectively AIM-system connected, it supplies the camera with power, turns it on and also steers the beginning and the ending of the films, which can be in the highest recording quality up to 32 hours long. In the stand-alone operation the SmartyCam HD either begins the recording by touch of a button or automatically when a certain threshold value of the internal acceleration sensors is reached. The integrated battery last for curtly 1 ½ hours recording time.

Pricewise towards the predecessor nothing has changed: the nude SmartyCam HD still costs 928 €. The complete kit incl. connection cable for AIM-systems, battery charger, USB-cable, 4GB SD-card and DMSB- conformable holding kit for the mounting on the roll cage is 119 € more expensive. The in near time appearing version SmartyCam HD (Optical unit and recording devise separated) will cost with the same equipment 1166 €. For now the SmartyCam HD will only be delivered with 84° wide-angle optics, the 67° standard optic will follow shortly and a 120° super-wide-angle-version will come with the bullet camera GP-version.
