battery camera is easier to make, for a motorcycle there isn't the heat problem that you would normally get with a dashcam in the window, not really an issue for this application
in a bike application the main unit is more likely to be out of direct sunlight in the majority of installations, bike electrical systems are more of a challenge than a car so a battery does make things more reliable in some cases, certainly easierYou're probably speaking from experience but capacitors still would have been the way to go. On a really hot day, even just parked under direct sun, no parking mode, still not good long term.
The Viofo MT1 uses capacitors, but as jokiin says, there is no greenhouse effect on a bike, or at least most bikes. Use of a super capacitor does mean you don't have to keep the DVR box out of the sun and can also use it in cars, but for bikes that are not used for long periods, may result in loss of clock time.You're probably speaking from experience but capacitors still would have been the way to go.

Did you install it onto your motorcycle or not?
