Read the full Chilli Technology Action Cam Max review

We quite liked the original Action Cam, mostly because its price is so low you only need to use it a couple of times to be worth the money. You could almost buy it for a single special bike trip or skydiving treat. The Action Cam Max costs twice as much, but our conclusion is basically the same. With the plethora of mountings included, though, you will be able to put this model to work in a greater range of situations. So, whilst image quality is no match for premium specialist extreme sports camcorders, if you just want to grab footage in a variety of situations hands free, the Chilli Technologies Action Cam Max gives you plenty of options for a keen price.

Indeed it looks a handy track day device but I must point out the windscreen sucker mount is useless for this: All track day organisers rightly insist the camera is properly mounted. I use a roll bar mount which went on the harness bar of a VX220 and is 100% rigid. Hope I get another track car soon ...

That's true of some trackday organisers, but I'm sure it depends on how stringent they are. I took it out on the Porsche Experience test track at Silverstone (the footage you see in the video) and they were absolutely fine about it.

Perhaps because the camera is so light, there is no momentum to speak of so they let you leave it there ...

I'm going to try and sneak it past on the next trackday I do in my car. They may not even notice it lurking underneath the rearview mirror.
