We often get asked “why do I need to buy a helmet cam to shoot my rides?” As they say “a picture is worth a thousand words”. If the facts that pov cameras are way lighter, easier to mount and much easier to use are not clear, perhaps these random shots found on the web will answer that question.
OMG! How many pounds is that thing? I think he forgot to mount the generator to go with all that gear.
A little better but a metal plate mount? Are you Frankenstein? Do the chicks go for this look?
He doesn’t look too happy. I wouldn’t be happy either wearing that thing. Is that a coathanger eye piece? Awesome.
Giant ugly, heavy counter weight on the left, check. Bulky, non waterproof DV cam with hard to reach controls on the right. Check. Complete dorkage look. Check. Dude, try one of our pov 1.5 cams and you’ll never go back to this monstrosity again.
The reason action videographers choose helmet cameras specially designed for shooting sports are:
(1) light weight
(3) tough, rugged build
(5) easy to use
(6) easy to mount
(7) extra wide angle
(8) shoots on SD cards for fast/easy transfer
