AiM continues to lead the pack with video and data integration that is unbeatable. Why go on track with a generic action-camera? SmartyCam3 has been designed for motorsports with a single purpose: to provide great videos that include all the technical information that will help you improve your performance. The picture quality is excellent, the overlays are very configurable, and one of the biggest features for us is that the camera starts and stops automatically, and it even powers on by itself - no more trying to remember if the camera is running while strapped in on grid, so no more missed footage!
The AiM SmartyCam 3 Corsa bridges the gap between high-resolution video and on-screen data in one revolutionary package designed specifically for motorsports. From its conception, the goal with SmartyCam was to create a truly visual data tool that would provide stunning video quality with integrated on-screen feedback to ultimately make you go faster on the racetrack. Racing deserves a better video and data solution, and SmartyCam is the answer.

1920 x 1080 resolution at 60 FPS

Video with a racing heart and engineering mind
SmartyCam embodies everything AiM has learned from decades of being on and at the track. Each component, from imaging to the body itself, was selected for its ability to provide the highest quality video and data. The result is a track-ready system that is all show without sacrificing the go.
Auto data overlay means you won't be overwhelmed
SmartyCam 3 Corsa allows you to quickly select from a variety of in-video overlays tailored for your type of racing. The new SmartyManager software even offers the freedom to choose from a vast gallery of overlay elements to create a customizable video experience. And with the improved LogoManager plug-in, personalizing your video has never been easier.
The difference is in the data)
Visualize RPM, speed, lap times, G's, throttle, brake, track position, and anything else you might want to see in a video to help you improve. Were you actually "flat out" through turn five, or did it just feel that way? Now there's no guessing, no question, and no excuses. Faster lap times are just a video away, as you can analyze every second of every lap.
Tack-sharp for the track
A quantum leap in video, SmartyCam is the first to offer a global shutter CMOS imager for motorsport applications. Traditional cameras use a rolling shutter to capture video, which causes wave and vibrations, resulting in poor video quality. The advantage of a global shutter is that it exposes the entire image simultaneously, not one line at a time. This provides clear picture and brilliantly sharp race footage.
AiM came up with an exclusive seven-element optics package so that your race footage, day or night, looks brighter and sharper than ever before. To be sure your video plays back exactly the way you saw it on track, a hybrid infrared filter keeps clarity-robbing light out for more accurate, uniform colors.
A well laid plan comes together
Taking SmartyCam a step further, the AiM team came up with pioneering video and data stream management firmware. Through better programming, they were able to make files smaller, which means sharing and editing your video has never been easier. Generic HD cameras are focused on the highest pixels number. The result is that their video files are far too large, taking too much memory; for this reason SmartyCam 3 videos have the same quality as other FHD cameras but their files are smaller because the H.264 compression system parameters have been optimized to perfectly balance video quality and file size.
Form and function
Sporting an all-aluminum chassis with waterproof construction, the SmartyCam is track-clad and ready for battle. The front-mounted TFT color display makes aiming and setup a breeze, while the detailed buttons allow for navigation even by a gloved-hand.
Never miss a session
SmartyCam uses intelligent recording logic to start and stop, so you never miss any on-track footage. Select from a variety of smart-settings to fit your racing application. The internal memory even has tracks saved so it will automatically recognize the track you're on. The built in three-axis accelerometer instantly and automatically brings the system to life, tells it when to start and stop, and even when to power down to conserve battery life. Plus, you can connect your SmartyCam to an AiM data system and let the integrated CAN bus do all of the heavy-lifting, from charging and recording, to data sharing between devices. All you have to do is drive (really fast, of course).
If you have a formula car, or a bike, in which SmartyCam 3 is not as easy to install, we also offer SmartyCam GP. This camera provides the same video quality, same connections to data loggers, and has the same features but in black anodized aluminum, billet machined with a light, robust, and really small Bullet-Camera.
