It would be alright if the cam just ran all the time and you didn't have to fuck with it unless you wanted to pull footage that was worth pulling.

Maybe I'll get some skis and face forward all day. .....
That all you do. Turn it on, snap it to your helmet. There is ONE it, it starts recording. With a good SD card, it will record for hours. Click once to start, click once to stop. Nothing else to do, no PITA. People are making way too much a big deal about it. I'll just repeat, though, think of all the rapid motion and vibration your board goes through. Think of all the movements your leg is making. That is why the helmet mount is essentially just looks where you're looking, and you'll get much smoother POV video. If you want to watch YOURSELF riding, mount it on your board and point it back up at you instead of pointing it forward. Again, no PITA, just click once and it starts recording. No big deal.
