Cameras

Looking for a helmet cam, wondering which is the best for a reasonable price.

The go pro HD seems to be what a lot of people are getting these days.

Why get a helmet cam, I think the quality isn't as good as a normal video camera, and the angles you get are not as exciting.

The only upside is that you don't have to get out of your boat to get shots.

I'd also recommend the GoPro HD Helmet Cameras and also the Contour HD is very popular too.

I got GoPro HD a month ago, so far I am very happy with it. The angle on that thing is very wide. The camera isn't too good in low light conditions, and also since its in the case the sound isn't great either, really muffled. Otherwise it takes great HD video and very easy to mount to anything.

VIO POV 1.5. Yes, I know a little more expensive but you get so much more. It adjusts to light conditions faster. You have a remote you can put anywhere and don't have to push any buttons on the actual devise. Also, the mounting options are endless and it is much lower profile on your helmet. Quality is also amazing.

Here is their site www.vio-inc.com

here is some video I have shot with mine Ross Herr Kayaking

hope this helps
