Sena’s new 10C Evo helmet intercom arrives this week with a slimmer profile and an integrated 4K camera that allows you to narrate and include background music.
Tracey Pola of Sena Australia says the $589 unit will arrive this week and the entire shipment is pre-sold.
The popularity of both intercoms and cameras to record rides for entertainment and evidence in the case of accidents is increasing.
So units that combine the two should be winners, especially in such a compact unit as this Sena 10C Evo.
Be warned that police in Victoria and South Australia still believe cameras attached to helmets render the helmet non-compliant.
However, since we have not heard of any police fining a rider for having an intercom on a helmet, you may be able to fool the cops by telling them it’s just an intercom!
Sena 10C Evo
The new 10C Evo intercom will pair with four other units with range up to 1.6km (1 mile).
It includes all the usual intercom functions, as well as FM and pairing with a device up to 15m away.
Despite also including a 4K (30 frames per second ) camera, the unit is now 10% slimmer at 95mm long, 59mm tall and only 31mm wide. That’s only about 5mm wider than their 30K unit.
However, the big attraction with this integrated unit is that you can easily narrate over the video.
You can even add background music with their Smart Audio Mix tech – all on the fly!
No need for editing all this into the video later on.
You can start recording at the touch of a button and voice prompts will keep you updated on your videoing.
There is also a video tagging function to save important events from a continuous loop of video to create highlights.
Apart from video, it will also take photos in still shot, burst, or time-lapse mode (one shot every second or every 2, 5 or 10 seconds).
A full battery charge will provide about 20 hours of talk time and 90 minutes of video recording.
The 10C EVO accepts MicroSD cards up to 128 GB.
