10 questions to ask when choosing a video data logger
The benefits of using data logging in motorsport are well known, but it's only in the last few years that systems have started synchronising video as well. Integrated video and data is becoming increasingly popular in all areas, from trackday enthusiasts who want to learn how to improve their lap times, to professional racing drivers and teams wanting to find the last few hundredths of a second per corner or compare the effects of different suspension settings.
Tightly synced video with forward and driver facing cameras allow users a wealth of visual information to make data analysis both easy and fast. Providing a video reference for braking and turning points, video enhanced data loggers give drivers a clear understanding of what else was happening on track at the time (e.g. if you were caught behind a slower car) and offers you a clear guide to driver technique.
However, with the increasing number of systems available all with different features it can be confusing deciding which one is best for you.
Compiled by users across all levels of motorsport, over the next few pages are a list of 10 important questions you need to ask when purchasing a video enhanced data logger.
