Here is an edit that I'm proud of, it's a couple of years old but it shows all the thought I put into various angles and ways of shooting with just POV cams.



"Lead Cam" is better than "Chase Cam"
yea I liked this video. Very good. You had alot of stuff in there and spent ALOT of time filming for this video but made it look easy. Definitely pro

King_Pin_Rich You might be better off arranging this as a specific survey aimed at action cameras, can't be arsed to Google it but you can host them online then provide a link and output some statistical results at the end.

One of the features I love with the Drift helmets cams is the helmet mount and the Universal Clip that comes with the camera. It allows you, with gloves on, to quickly remove and re-attach the camera with one hand. Even though I work for the resort and a helmet cam company, I don't want to "Look" like a tool bag in the lift line.

So the end of every run, I quickly remove the cam and stick it in my pocket before I even get to the lift line. Drift also has an auto off feature which works nice to save juice. Useful when you just shove it in that dry pocket. I'll stuff a napkin in there to absorb any moisture that that cam has. I get a lot of face shots even on the groomers.

Nothing worse that seeing a Teletubbie in the Men's room.

supham They can be fun but they are a lot of work. Don't bore people with uncut video. For a decent video you will spend 4X long in front of the computer as you did actually filming.

The more detailed the discriptions are, the better, and please refer to specific camera models.

looking forward to hearing what you have to say!
If you want people to help with your survey you're going to have to record a video intro.
