Talking Camcorder (Leg/Binding mounted)??

Hey Guys,

Im looking for a high quality camcorder that can be mounted below my knee on my lead leg..maybe on an elastic band or something. It would have to be pretty thin in case i fell onto it etc.

Either that or something i can mount easily to my binding..

Its just for the pistes and i dont wear helmets on pistes so dont want a helmet cam.

Any help appreciated!!

Cheers

So what you're saying is you'd rather have a 5lb camera strapped to your leg than a 10 ounce helmet camera? Great fucking logic there.

Not to mention having shit strapped to your board/leg is gotta be hella awkward and captures weird footage.

I think I'd just wear the helmet and save yourself a lot of trouble.

No way would i be considering anything near 5 pounds...im thinking more along the lines of a very thin sports camcorder about the size of a match box.

Ive seen footage from them before and its far more interesting than a head cam imo

My girlfriend modified the the helmet strap for the gopro so that it can be velcro'd around the leg, arm etc. works great.

So essentially what you're saying is you want a GoPro helmet camera with either the gorilla mountain, or the strap. I swear to god stupidity reigns down from the high heavens every day that snowboarders aren't forced to be innovative. No wonder the 90's were the golden age. Fuck where's my Delorean and Fluxcapacitator I'm going back to 95.

Definitely a Go Pro. Any other camera that meets that size criteria is going to give you pretty crappy footage. So you'll want a helmet cam, except you don't want a helmet cam.
