With helmet mount thoug, isn't that getting in the way when ducking in the trees? I do some good summersaults throughout the day, seems like that would be an issue also.
I already have dents in my helmet from the trees. Seems like when I'm trying to duck just enough to make the tree I'm naturally only accounting for my head and skimming the helmet. The camera would clothesline me!!
It's an REI thing so I can take it back whenever.
And I too never got the point of filming with a pole,,,
Yeah, if you're in tight trees and you're skimming branches that much, then I could see it being an issue if you mount it to the top of your helmet. Someone has to make a camera that's built in your goggles! If Zeal hasn't done it already...they already have goggles with a heads up GPS display and run tracker.
