dogcam Bullet HD 2 action camera £174.95

Compact, lightweight action snapper

BikeRadar score 3/5

Claiming to be the smallest and lightest 1,080-pixel bullet shaped camera on the market, the dogcam HD 2 has to be one of the easiest to use too.

One button turns the camera on and off with a prolonged press, and when it’s on, it’s recording. There’s also a laser pointer to help you set up your shot, but it’s a bit of a token gesture because it’s useless in daylight.

A switch at the rear lets you toggle between filming in Full HD (1,080p) at 30 frames per second and lower resolution HD (720p) at 60fps. All other adjustments require you to attach the camera to your computer and use the software included on the 8GB microSD card supplied with the camera.

The footage is good, though it took us a while to dial in the sharpness using the software – our first recordings looked a little grainy. It handles all but the biggest changes in light levels surprisingly well, and battery life is impressive too.

Flat and curved sticky mounts are included (with replacement pads), along with a bar mount. It comes with both open and closed screw-on backs too, with the open back being the best option if you want to pick up sound via the onboard mic.
