For those of you that are posting all those videos, what kind of helmet camera do you use? I would love to compare different ones. Do you have links you can share? How do you like yours?
I used to do all my videoing with a still camera in video mode, held in my hand. I now am the proud owner of a GoPro Hero 2, which has been amazing. There was a bit of a learning curve as I figured out the beeps and modes, but now I have it down and its been a blast.
I do have to say the "waterproof" case has not been so, so not sure that I would take it swimming as they advertise.. but the camera hasn't had any issues with the rain or dense fog, other than condensation forming inside the case and making the picture spotty (aggravating, but fixed with wiping out the case with a towel).
It deals with the rocking/shaking motion of riding well, though I suspect anything would be better than my hand-held camera. :lol: It does well with the light to dark transitions of sun to shade nicely too.
I have the Contour Roam and while you can't see any of the video on a playback, it has to be uploaded to a computer, I like the videos. When I first got it the audio wasn't very good at all. With a download of software it had a huge improvement. I like that it is a wide angle camera. It will mount to a helmet and can be set at different angles.
Do these cameras have an image stabilizer built in, or is just that your head is pretty steady? I have used a simple hand-held camera, but you could get sea sick watching the video! I'm starting to do research to figure out what kind of camera I should take on my GWT trip.
I agree with the hand held how a person can get seasick watching the vids LOL
I would love to have a helmet cam!! A friend got one a few years ago that could clip on a cap too but there was a wire that came down where you could start/stop it, does that one have a wire too.....love the vids you posted!
Phantom great video. It looked like you were going to loose your head under that tunnel !!
Does your horse wear bells or is that your tack ?
I was looking at the Contour because the profile is smaller. There is also a new company coming out with one that will compete with the Go Pro.. should be on the market soon, but I forgot the name of the company.
