Mounting Options

By James Morris



Our Score:


Another pleasing feature of the Bullet HD Wide is that it's waterproof to 10m, which is around three times deeper than most waterproof Flip-style camcorders offer. This makes it much more appropriate for activities like snorkelling or even shallow scuba diving. Two end caps are supplied, one for use underwater, with no microphone holes and one with microphone holes but no waterproofing. You can still record sound underwater but it will be muffled. Several spare rubber O-rings are included to ensure you have a replacement, providing a snug fit with the underwater cap.

The end caps also incorporate a 1/4in screw thread, so can be attached to a standard tripod. However, as the fitting is on the end rather than the bottom, the lens will be pointing straight up, so you would have to use the tripod with its mounting plate pointing directly at your subject rather than flat as per usual. However, this standard fixture will mean the Bullet HD Wide can be used with a variety of vehicle mounting systems, such as Dogcam's Window Camera Suction Mount.

You won't need the screw thread for most activities, however, as Dogcam bundles a comprehensive range of mounting options in the box. There's a rigid plastic holder through which you can thread a thin rubber strap to attach the camcorder to your head. You can also thread the straps on a set of goggles through this mount, to record footage when swimming, skiing, or performing any other activity involving strapped-on eyewear.

A second flexible mount incorporates a velcro strip. You can use this with a wider, elasticated strap to attach the camera to a helmet, your head, or anything else you can think of. Alternatively, a trio of self-adhesive velcro patches are included, which you can stick to a helmet that you use regularly. However, you need to be pretty sure which direction you want the camera to point in before attaching one of these, as they are designed to be stuck on permanently. A final option is another flexible mount with a velcro band for strapping round a pole or roll cage strut.

Shame that the quality of the review video is so poor that it's impossible to judge the quality of the camera. Why not post the review video at 720p and low compression?

You can't trust dogcam to actually deliver these units. I ordered on 1-2 day delivery and 4 working days later I was notified that the shipper has finally received them and they would arrive another 4 days later. By then, my nephews (for whom these were to be gifts) will be back in another continent. I don't know when I will next see them, and even if I spend the money to ship them abroad, we've missed the opportunity to film our ski trip. Almost any other supplier and manufacturer must be more reliable than dogcam. Look elsewhere for your cameras.

My Dogcam HD refused to charge after just 18 months of below average use. The best Dogcamsport could offer me was a 10% discount on a new one! Buy rubbish, buy twice! Get a GoPro.. I am.

As below, bought two Dogcams for myself and my son and a little after the 12 month warranty expired, both units now will not charge with Dogcam simply offering 10% of another one.
Sound quality is dreadfull too

Avoid this product and this company.

The power unit on mine went after a few months. Charging worked intermittently from the start.

When I sent it back to dogcam, they conceded that it was broken, yet refused to give me a refund, rather offering me to spend money on another dogcam camera at a 10% discount.

How generous. I'd love to give incompetent manufacturers and dishonourable business people even more money.
