    Being myself an orthodox sim racer I have always been driving in cockpit view. No bonnet cam. God forbid the chase cam. But one beautiful day I decided to try the helmet cam in ACC. Now I see the light! I cannot thank enough whoever at Kunos decided to add this to the game. It just made driving in ACC so much more fun! For a single 21:9 display this is fantastic, the rotation of the camera when turning allows me to see the corner apex much better even with my low FOV of 30 and the movements during acceleration and braking make driving much more alive. Going back to the standard cockpit cam now feels like dying a little. Just give the helmet cam a chance guys, it is phenomenal.

    Grazie mille.

    Oh and BTW, is there anything similar in AC? CM / Shaders patch?

    I love real head movement in AC, but I find the movements in Helmet Cam in ACC a bit too much (they give me motion sickness)….Is there an option to tone them down?

    Totally agree with you! love the helmet cam.
    It gives a realy reality touch, because thats what a drivers head in a race car does(leaning left and right). This cam is the best compromise between VR and normal driving on a one screen setup, i think. And i have 21:9 too, greeat imersion.

    Does helmet cam have working virtual mirror yet, kind of needs this as its pretty hard to race in some cars if you can barely see any mirrors. Other then that the helmet cam is pretty cool but I can do without actually seeing the helmet on my screen, the motion is pretty decent.

    Agree, it would be nice. I have to tell you though that I finally decided to not use mirrors at all: radar + map does the trick for me. Also, I avoid the stress of checking the mirror all the time. :D I did quite a few races with that and it worked perfectly well. I check the map to see which cars are approaching, and for close battles the radar gives me all the info I need. Of course it is not very realistic.

    I rely solely on radar and 'look back'. I'll use the mirrors once track IR is sorted (pretty please! ;))

    If the view had a virtual mirror then it would be my standard, go to view. I'm not quicker in any way but I'm more consistent in hitting my apexes.

    My only problem with helmet cam is that depending on the settings you use, the helmet itself, wheel and your hands could get in the way and ruin my view. What I like about this camera settings are the movement, so it would be nice if we could hide the helmet and wheel.

    Sadly, this doesn't make you faster.
    So if you are looking for having fun, use the helmet cam, but if you are looking for the best performance, you'll have to stick with the hud cam.

    You can get it much better than default by using pitch amongst others to improve the view. The default is very dashboard facing.

    But that's what I mean, I don't use default settings. After changing settings the stuff I mentioned still get in the way, so simply having the option to remove them like you do in the regular cockpit view would be enough. Or add an "enhanced movement" option to regular cockpit view which does the same as the helmet cam, both works.

    Hmm after getting used to it I have the same speed as before and more enjoyable driving so.. no going back for me. I feel that whatever view or FOV angle you choose it's just a matter of getting used to it.

    The helmet cam feels very weird in VR. It's like you've got a big bucket on our head because you can see down under the helmet.

    I’m going to tease a bit :D and say that TrackIR is the helmet cam fully upgraded with the added plus of full control movement in real time.:)

    Although, I’m not a fan of helmet cam because how it changes pitch with braking and acceleration, besides being a constant reminder and a teaser for not being able to use TrackIR, which would add total liberty of axis movement according to what is needed in each situation.

    I dont use it. I appreciate Kunos added it for some users. For me it's like I am driving with my head in a fish bowl.. I have never used TrackIR however I am hoping to give that a go one day mainly for mirror checks..

    I don't like it either. Playing on a regular screen by default it makes the road to far and too tiny (24' screen though...)
    So I decrease the FOV, it zooms in but then I have two giant gloves almost blocking my view each time I turn the wheel. :p
    Dashboard cam is the best for me on pancake screen.
    Obviously, cockpit cam in VR.

    Thanks for the hint. I´ve checked it out yesterday and set it up like my former cockpit view. So the wheel and hands won´t disturb the view needed just a bit pitch and height correction. Really immersive cam!

    It's great but the movement is too much I want an option to remove or tone down the movement.

    A question: what does the 'dashcam' slider do? I've moved it from 0% - 100% but can't see any difference...
    Am I being blind to something?
