Apart from the legal implications it makes great sense as a tool for training. Bushnell used to import one that mounted above a normal scope sight and with a remote switch meaant you could analyse the clients shot and release after the event!
I'm reduced to sourcing one from the US now as the UK importers are monging it!

An excellent training tool if you can collimate a reticle in the view with the weapon's point of aim.

A lot of my cadets have these:

Muvi Atom - Black

They love clipping / taping them to webbing straps and taking them on weekends. If anybody wants to know more I'll try and get a Youtube link off one of them.

Am I the only one to see the dangers of this? Some crusading lawyer uses it to hang you by your balls as they can slo-mo in court over hours whether you were right to take a split second decision or not. Not in a million years do I want one of these.

No see my first response "apart from the legal implications"
Besides might make Helmand more like Belfast, yellow card, count your shots, Socco and WIS!

Its good but not what I want, I want something similar to the Bushnell camera which mounts over the top of a sporrting scope and can be collimated to the scope. Remote switch and sound would be good!

Ugly, try searching for a source from ZA.
I can remember there was a scope with an optic fibre port to be used as a coaching aid - but when fitted to a camera SpesMag managed to make their own version of "South Africa's Funniest Home Videos."

We used them as rifle and helmet cams for such mundane things as showing we hadnt beaten detainees during a raid, recording cache finds, AAR of raids, etc.

OK a honest and decent answer one which I will say is a good idea, though there is a lot of young lads that have bought them for the sole use of creating war porn. I would be more happy if at platoon level they had no access to the footage (not appear on there laptops or youtube) and it was controlled centrally by a plattoon SNCO and kept as archive.

I have had to deal with utter morons who just bought a cam for the purpose of home movies, and showboating on RTU via youtube. My answer is a little biased.

That is old news - yu'll note that unlike the Tachyon, the Bushnell is only offering VGA - which is crap for anything over 50 yards.
feck me I cant see that far!
