I don’t have the Wi-Fi version, but the Sena tube prism that I do have is very easy to install and use. And the price is much more reasonable than a go pro.

What model of Sena camera do you have?
How is the resolution of the picture when you play it back? In using a car dash video camera which works quite well.
Do you plug the Sena Camera into your 12 volt power socket. I think the Senas will run continously and loop. Loop, meaning that once the micro chip card is full, the camera continues to record video and just writes over the footage that was taken earlier.
Thanks for sharing SHUMBA

Mine is the Sena Prism Tube without WiFi. Very basic. The resolution is good enough to where I can see the license plates of cars as I ride by....unless it’s nighttime. Then the reflection of light off of the plate makes the plates letters and numbers impossible to read. It’s no GoPro in terms of resolution, but it does the job for me and it only cost around $130 when I bought it a couple of years ago. It runs on a rechargeable battery for 2 hours. You are correct in that it has a loop mode, but I can also have it just record one large file. I prefer the loop mode. If I really want to save anything, I transfer the file to my computer. Again, nothing fancy, but it does what I want it to do for a relatively inexpensive cost.

OK, thanks for that .
Anybody out there running a camera on their bikes?
Ideally, I'd like an excellent resolution, 60 frames per second FPS 12 volt power socket running off the bike. Continuous loop, so unless something happens the camera will simply overwrite earlier video footage.
And, finally, it must be waterproof.
Thanks for your input assistance.

Shumba, have you looked at the Innovv K2? Front and rear waterproof cameras, recording unit fits under the seat, auto start/stop off the ignition, continuous loop. You can remove the SD card to get the data or use built-in Wi-Fi to download it to your phone. Not cheap but fit and forget.

I'm running the sena 10c pro. Multiple bikes mean having a helmet cam makes life easier.

Its higher res than the prism, it loops just like a dashcam, and can be charged while recording.
Okay, how is the resolution?
Is the video clear crisp.?

Here's a short video using the 10c pro.

Thanks for sharing, assuming your clocks are in MPH....slow it down a little.
I had a good read about the Sena 10C pro camera and it appears that it doesn't loop, instead you would have to stop and place another micro SD card to continue video.
I need something that checks all of the boxes.
12 volt power socket for continuous video.
Ability to loop, so no need to see previous video unless an event should occur.
Must must power on and off with the bike's ignition key. Finally, must be waterproof.
I will keep looking and using my car DVR, the only thing it lacks is waterproofing.
But, thanks again, ride safely.

It does indeed loop. And you can save 3 minute loops by pressing a button. Works just like the dashcam in my car.
12 volt power socket for continuous video.
It can be externally charged while recording. For long rides, I carry a small power pack ($11) in my jacket pocket and have a short wire from it to the camera. For me, this is easier than having a wire to the bike and easily lasts all day.
Ability to loop, so no need to see previous video unless an event should occur.
See above. The card has enough space for at least 2 days of video, then it records over the oldest video automatically, I don't bother saving anything as it just as easy to retrieve it that evening. Or the next day. It also has wifi, so you can connect wirelessly with your phone for data transfer. Also makes it super simple to set up and aim the camera.

Must must power on and off with the bike's ignition key. Finally, must be waterproof.

It is highly water resistant. I don't think you could leave it at the bottom of a lake, but rain or splashing hasn't been a problem at all so far.

Good luck.

The only box it doesn't seem to check for you is auto on and off. You do have to press a button to start and stop it. But since it also contains your audio for intercom, phone calls, music, and gps, you're turning all those things on at once. It's also easily operated with one hand while you're riding should you need.

Thanks for all of your input on the Sena 10C Pro camera.
I re-read the description about this camera and there was no mention of the looping capabilities. If you say it does then it does.
If I can find one at a reasonable price I will likely order it.
In addition, since it will be a helmet mounted camera, I will find a suitable power pack to ensure a full day's riding with the camera running. I ride mostly solo, and I don't listen to music or want any phone calls, so I really don't require many of the features this camera offers. Ideally, if I can find the right model of this camera that shoots only video along with an excellent resolution.
Thanks again for your detailed information and advice.
