The BimmerWorld View- Why go on track with a generic action-camera? SmartyCam HD has been designed for motorsports with a single purpose: providing great videos that include all the technical information that will help you improve your performance. The picture quality is excellent, the overlays are very configurable, and one of the biggest features for us is the camera starts and stops automatically and even powers on by itself - no more trying to remember if the camera is running while strapped in on grid or missed footage!

The all new SmartyCam HD bridges the gap between high-resolution video and on-screen data in one revolutionary package designed specifically for motorsports. From conception, the goal with SmartyCam HD was to create a truly visual data tool that would provide stunning video quality with integrated on-screen feedback to ultimately make you go faster on the racetrack. Racing deserves a better video and data solution, and that is what is provided here.
Video with a racing heart and engineering mind SmartyCam HD embodies everything that we've learned from decades of being on and at the track. Each component, from imaging to the body itself, was selected for its ability to provide the highest quality video and data. The result is a track-ready system that is all show without sacrificing the go.
Tack-sharp for the track By selecting the latest in global shutter CMOS technology, we were able to craft a system that could not only stand up to the rigors of the racing environment, but excel in these conditions. And just to ensure that your on-track action is at its clearest, AiM Sports has added an all-new custom lens package.
Auto data overlay means you won't be overwhelmed SmartyCam HD allows you to quickly select from a variety of in-video overlays tailored for your type of racing. Prefer something even more you? The new SmartyManager software offers the freedom to choose from a vast gallery of overlay elements to create a video experience that is all your own. And with the improved LogoManager plug-in, personalizing your video has never been better.
The difference is in the data Visualize RPM, speed, lap times, G's, throttle, brake, track position, and anything else you might want to see in a video to help you improve. Were you actually 'flat' through turn five, or did it just feel that way? Now there's no guessing, no question, and no excuses. Faster lap times are just a video away.
Wave goodbye A quantum leap in video, SmartyCam HD is the first to offer a global shutter CMOS imager for motorsport applications. Traditional cameras use a rolling shutter to capture video, which causes wave and other artifacts - the result is poor video quality. The advantage of a global shutter is that it exposes the entire image simultaneously, not one line at a time. This provides clear picture and brilliantly sharp race footage.
AiM came up with an exclusive seven element optics package so that your race footage, day or night, looks brighter and sharper than ever before. Just to be sure your video plays back exactly the way you saw it on track, they added a hybrid infrared filter to keep clarity-robbing light out for more accurate, uniform colors.
A well laid plan comes together Taking SmartyCam HD a step further, the AiM team came up with pioneering video and data stream management firmware. Through better programming, they were able to make files smaller, which means sharing and editing your video has never been easier.
Form and function Sporting an all-new and all-aluminum chassis with waterproof construction, the SmartyCam HD is track-clad and ready for battle. The front mounted TFT color display makes aiming and setup a breeze, while the detailed buttons allow for navigation even by a gloved-hand.
One less button to forget SmartyCam HD uses intelligent recording logic to start and stop, so you never miss any on-track footage. Select from a variety of smart-settings to fit your racing application. The built in three axis accelerometer instantly and automatically brings the system to life, tells it when to start and stop, and even when to power down to conserve battery life. And just when you thought it couldn't get any smarter! Connect your Smarty-Cam HD to an AiM data system and let the integrated CAN bus do all of the heavy-lifting, from charging and recording, to data sharing between devices. We are making it so all you have to do is drive (really fast, of course).
Please Note: Included with the SmartyCam HD is 12v power source, CAN cables are a separate accessory. AiM has since updated their cameras to either 60 or 120 degree lenses. This 84 degree model has the same great features, but an 84 degree lens instead. Limited quantities available, no backorders accepted!
