I am considering getting a camera for my bike to use when I am riding on busy streets, kind of as an insurance policy in case something happens. I am not interested in being able to make epic ride films because no one needs to hear me singing, humming, saying hi to the animals along the trail, or otherwise talking out loud to myself. But I have had enough close calls commuting to work that a camera is starting to seem like a good idea.
So, looking for recommendations. Do I need front and back cameras? Is a front camera on my helmet the best option? What things should I think about?
And, also, camera recommendations. Preferably ones that I don’t also have to have an app running on my phone to make it all work. I have an older iPhone that doesn’t have a lot of storage on it so I am constantly bumping up against the “you don’t have enough storage space for that” message. And that’s probably more information than y’all need to know, but there it is
