My Twenty20 VholdR Helmet Camera Review

I bought the Twenty20 VholdR camera a couple months ago. Thought I might post my review for those interested.

After testing it on a couple trails at Breckenridge and while mountain biking, I have to say that the VholdR camera is the best hands-free camera for action sport athletes. There are so many reasons why ya'll should go out and buy one.

-The Design: the small, sleek design of the VholdR is definitely one of its strongest points. Its light, yet extremely durable due to its shockproof design. None of its internal components are exposed to the elements, making the VholdR one durable camera. Ive dropped this camera numerous times (due to my innate clumsiness) on the pavement, boulders, ice and never had it affect the quality of the camera. The sturdiness of the VholdR has provided smooth video recording on the roughest trails and experience. The VholdR also attaches to my snowboard and bike helmet with great ease. The small size of the camera makes the attachment to a helmet easy and non-distracting. I found the ACT2K, a camera I used prior to purchasing a VholdR, to feel very awkward when attached to my helmet

-Video Quality: Excellent, TV-like quality. Videos are recorded in a .mpeg4 (avi) file. There are no skips or anything in the recording process. The use of lasers (the VholdR is the first handsfree cam to utilize such technology) helps coordinate and orient the perspective of the recording process. The VholdR also has an internal memory drive that can hold up to 100 minutes of videos. The USB port makes the transfer of videos to a computer easy and simple.

-Other Perks: Simple usability, nothing too complicated. THE PRICE. At $330, the VholdR provides the biggest bang for your buck! WIth all the financial problems in today's time, the VholdR provides everything the amateur action sports video camerman could ever need without leaving a huge hole in your wallet!

I can't wait for more snow to hit the slopes so that I could use this baby more! Ill be posting some of my VholdR video clips on these message boards in the future.

Following up on my review of the VholdR camera...

Check out their website. A cool thing about VholdR is that they provide a forum for VholdR users to upload and share their home videos. There are some really sick videos uploaded on the boards...
one particular video to check out: Scotty Vine gets knocked out! | VholdR

Getting knocked out in a clown suit. All new heights of shame. At an event in Indiana a guy was boarding in a gold thong and nothing else. He hit a tree and shattered his collar bone. I tried so hard not to laugh as a guy in a gold nuthugger was taken off the snow crying on a stretcher.
