Thinking of getting a helmet camera- but I would appreciate any ideas and recommendations from those with experience with them, as to on which to go for- pros and cons blah blah. Many thanks, and good morning!
Go Pro Hero Wide is the best budget one at the moment but it can be a bit hungry on batteries - it recommends lithium AAAs which aren't the cheapest. They are bringing out an HD one soon which may be worth waiting for.
Ha! Hmmm yyyeeeessssss....... I do remember seeing a bod a few years back who had done exactly that- black nastied a camcorder to his shwaad, sounds like a sore neck coming on with that idea! Thanks but Ill pass on that.....
well make sure your mates do too, else you'll end up getting a kicking when they're on the front page of the sun watching 2 afghan men partake in sexual acts!
my friend took one to Afghan, but soon left it in his bergen. He had far too much to do to mess around trying to use it, and ended up getting hacked off at people who were more interested in their helmet cams than the job in hand.
Thes Archos rigs are quite good - I've seen them used on broadcast productions once or twice.
The problem with these bits of kit is that they are all fully-auto so as soon as you face the sun the iris shuts down and you can't see anything.
Also because the thing is located on your noggin - it's constantly on the move - which makes for uncomfortable viewing later.
Although if you want to go high end then this is as good as it gets.
Of course you need a bit of room in your day sack for the CCU.
