I got these for skiing, haven't tried them on the horses yet though. I know they take awesome videos!

We live out in the country, about half an hour away from Brandon.

Has anybody tried the Sports Vue Cameras?

This is their top of the line. Maybe a little too big for mounting to a cowboy hat. But should be easy to mount to a pole.

They also have a line of bullet cameras that are cheaper and smaller

Hey, if you figure out how to attach one of those to a head wearing a cowboy hat, let me know! Otherwise, it would have to be attached to a pack horse somehow. Maybe I could rig up some sort of light-weight mounting pole that could be mounted on top of a pack saddle after it is packed. Buckle it to a strap or something.

What I really want, though, is one of those that James Bond wears, about the size of a button, that records full HD 1080P in 3D and 7.1 Surround-Sound! I never figured out where they hide the batteries for those darn things!

720X480 is good video for the computer, but it's quite fuzzy when you put it on a TV screen. It is likely that by the time I take my big trip, the size issue will be much better for the HD cameras. I think I'll wait and see. The tech stuff will be what I buy last before I head out.

Phantom I got the same camera that you have, going on recommendations from others. Use the chest halter and had issues with the videos freezing up. What settings do you use on your camera?
You all have inspired me to download the footage I took on a pack trip in November. If it's any good I'll post.
