They just invented this new type of camera that fits in the palm of your hand and records, not to VHS tapes, but to tiny chips made of computer type stuff. They are so small you can mount them to your helmet. I hear it is going to be all the rage with extreme sports athletes some day. The only problem is if you want to take a video of yourself, you have to take your helmet off to point the camera at your face. I suspect that might be what be what happened here, but since these cameras are only in the development stage and cost tens of thousands of dollars, you might be right and he ran the drop without a helmet after putting his VHS recorder back in his drybag.
