The H5 camera is a new helmet camera system designed and manufactured by Innovv. The H5 boasts many benefits, including a huge storage volume and long-lasting battery life. However, there are a few other useful functions of the H5 that you may not have discovered yet.
Below, we’re going to cover the five most impressive H5 features to help you make the most of your H5 helmet camera.
1. Slow-motion and fast-motion recording
The slow-motion recording option slows everything down to half the original speed, making it a great feature for power sports players, as it helps you record movements that the naked eye simply cannot follow. Flips, spins, jumps, and airtime have never looked better than in H5 slow-motion recording.
Alternatively, the fast-motion recording mode – or time-lapse recording – allows you to film over a long period of time and then compress the footage into a short video. You can choose from a selection of rates, including, 2x, 4x, 6x, 10x, and 15x. The H5 records in longer frame intervals than normal rates, which means you are able to watch the time passing much faster than in reality.
This function can be used to record the whole day’s riding, then you can compress the recording into a shorter video for others to watch and see footage of your journeys.
2. Special effects
In settings, you will find different graphic effects to choose from. These are black and white, negative and high contrast, among other special effects. When used effectively, these effects allow you to create your own video artwork. There are a variety of ways to record, all waiting for you to explore!
3. Supports exposure compensation
For night-time rides and dimly lit rides, it can be almost impossible to shoot clearly. Lighting and the time of day make a huge difference to the quality of your recordings. Luckily, Innovv’s H5 has an added ISO adjustment setting that can amend the photosensitivity to light in your camera.
When riding in dark streets, turning on the exposure compensation and adjusting to the right value until your camera can see its surroundings can help to record clear images no matter what the light conditions.
4. Distortion correction function
Refraction works on the principle that the smaller the focal length, the wider the lens – and thus, the more expansive the view. In order to capture a wide range of views and get a smaller camera size, the H5 camera applies a 120-degree wide-angle lens.
A lower focal length leads to a more distorted image, similar to looking through a fish-eye lens. If you want to capture ‘normal’ pictures and do not want to see all the scenes filmed on your trip oddly shaped, then the image correction tool will automatically adjust the picture through an algorithm to make images more pleasing visually.
However, the algorithm will damage the picture’s resolution to a certain extent, making the image smaller. The distortion correction feature can be found in the app’s settings and can be turned on or off in the relevant menu.
5. Can be mounted onto your bike
Although the H5 is a helmet camera system, it is not a camera system that can only be mounted to a helmet. The H5 can also be mounted to your bike’s handlebars with the right bracket. Simply secure it then mount your camera to the bracket. Our instruction manual will have details on how to do this.
And that’s a wrap on the five best functions our new Innovv H5 helmet camera has to offer.
