SENA SCA-M01 overview

  • 1Description

The Sena Prism Bluetooth Action Camera Motorcycle Pack features a 1080p action camera with unique Bluetooth capabilities such as remote voice recording, remote control, and voice feedback from operations. Included with the camera is a set of quick-release mounting accessories for motorcyclists, allowing you to capture hands-free video while adding remote audio from Bluetooth headsets and intercoms as you ride. Mounting options include a handlebar mount, suction cup, and adhesive mounts, and helmet mounts. The camera body is water-resistant for use in wet or rainy conditions, with a 131' rated waterproof housing included for underwater use.

A fixed-focal-length lens provides an ultra-wide 140° angle-of-view to capture just about everything happening in front of the lens. Using a 3.5MP CMOS sensor, the Prism supports Full HD 1080p video at 30 fps and 3.5MP JPEG still photos in microSD/SDHC cards up to 32GB in capacity. It can also record 720p video at 60/30 fps, 848x480p video up to 120 fps, and take 5MP interpolated photos. For convenient viewing of your footage on your HDTV straight from the camera, a micro HDMI port is provided.

The Sena Prism is Bluetooth 4.0 capable and is full compatibility with Sena Motorcycle Bluetooth products, supporting remote audio recording, remote control, and voice prompts. It is can also be used with other Bluetooth headsets in the market that support the hands-free profile (HFP) and audio/video remote control profile (AVRCP) with limited functionality.

Bluetooth Audio Recording
With the use of Bluetooth headsets, the Sena Prism allows you to add your voice to videos as you record using the Bluetooth Audio Recording feature. Along with your own voice, you can include audio from your friends or riding buddies through the use of an optional Bluetooth intercom device to create a mixed audio experience. Being able to narrate the video during recording not only provides users a whole new experience but also reduces the need for follow-up audio editing allowing for in the moment audio experiences.
Bluetooth Remote Control
While most cameras require wires or direct touch communication, the Sena Prism can be operated hands-free by using the remote control capability from Bluetooth headsets. The wireless remote control allows for more versatile control through the audio/video remote control profile (AVRCP) of Sena's Bluetooth products. The Bluetooth remote control also uses less power than Wi-Fi used by many other action cameras.
Voice Prompts
The Sena Prism comes with a voice prompt feature that allows users to receive clearer feedback from operations such as video start/stop commands, voice recording, communications, and more. Utilizing voice prompts helps to eliminate the concern and uneasiness of knowing which mode, whether on or off, while the camera is being control remotely. It also lets you keep your eyes on the road as your ride.
Quick Release Mount System
The camera uses a QRM (Quick Release Mount) interface for easy attaching to Sena accessories. The QRM allows users to easily install and uninstall the camera as needed helping to reduce the time and complications spent setting up for adventures and rides. The mounts come in various types that provide fast and secure ways to switch the camera mount system on motorcycles and helmets. Once users set up the system at a desired angle, the camera can then be mounted and released without using any screws or bolts or changing the camera angle allowing for quick and easy use.

    SENA SCA-M01 reviews

    Prism Bluetooth Action Camera Motorcycle Pack is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sub-par performance The good: Seamless integration with a Sena motorcycle communications unit, such as the 20s, was the primary reason I decided to try the Prism camera. BT pairing is quick and easy. You can record audio from you communicator, including conversations over an intercom pairing with another rider. You can also control the camera from the jog dial of the 20s. Start and stop recording; cycle through modes: video, single-shot, and time lapse; and even grab a still while video is rolling. The two buttons on the top of the unit are big and chunky and easy to use with gloves. There is also a little rubber cap over the micro USB port on the rear of the unit that allows you to power the camera via a powerbank for all-day recording. This works great when the camera is helmet-mounted. I keep a power bank in my chest pocket and run a short cord up to the camera and don't have to worry about running out of juice or swapping batteries mid-ride. The Bad: image quality, video bit rate, no image stabilization, microphone quality, and mounting options. Image quality and video bit rate were outdated when this camera was initially released. Today - laughably so. While other companies such as GoPro, Sony, and Garmin have been releasing new cameras and firmware updates for older units - Sena has stagnated. The new Prism Tube has the same image quality as the original Prism, and the 10c simply combined the Prism with a 20s communicator into one unit. I'm sure it's great for some riders, but I found the mounting of the 10c impractical - taking the 10c on and off your lid is a chore, and leaving the unit permanently mounted made storing my helmet in my bike's panniers impossible. As I said - no firmware revisions or support from Sena. The Prism is STILL on 1.0.0.0. Next, no Image Stabilization of any kind. It's an action camera specifically intended for motorcycling, and there is no IS. No optical, no electronic. Nothing. Microphone - pretty much useless - unless maybe you ride a Goldwing or a cruiser with a giant barn door sized windscreen. If you ride anything else and this camera is mounted in the breeze - all you get above about 25-30 mph is wind noise. That's it. PERIOD. Which leads me into my biggest complaint. Mounting. Again, this is a motorcycle specific action camera. It comes with a massive assortment of mounting hardware including handlebar clamps, adhesive backed mounts, various helmet mounts, even suction cup mounts. However, the only place I can get the camera to work is on my helmet. But then the internal mic on the camera is exposed to wind blast - and using the BT audio from my communicator microphone, which somehow has working noise cancellation when using the intercom and sounds fine over the in-helmet speakers - sounds like complete garbage when recorded on the Prism. So I've tried other on-bike mounting options. On Four different motorcycles. a 400cc single, a super smooth counter-balanced 998 60 degree Rotax twin, a Honda 650 52 degree twin, and a Moto Guzzi 1100 90 degree push-rod twin. All motorcycle engines have some vibration, and all of the bikes mentioned above have vibes at significantly different frequencies and amplitudes, which vary throughout the rev range. And on all of these bikes - those vibes render the Sena Prism unusable. I can run the camera all day with the camera mounted to my helmet, but when mounted on any of our bikes - forget it. It either locks up and all controls become unresponsive, continually power cycles off and on again, or just shuts down and won't power up again until you pull and re-seat the battery. Any video being recorded at the time is unusable as the recording session wasn't closed properly, so the file (if one was even saved to the memory card) is corrupt and unreadable. This is on any of our four bikes, and mounted in various locations. Handlebars, chassis, subframe, footpeg brackets, luggage, steering stem. You name it - I've tried mounting this thing everywhere, and get the same result every time. As a motorcycle specific camera, the Prism fails in an epic way. About all it's good for is as a helmet mounted commuter dash cam in the event of a proving fault in a traffic incident - and maybe not even then, as the image quality is so poor, reading license plates is often impossible. For creative on-bike action shots or high quality vacation images, this thing is useless.
