Video Camera on helmet

I've seen two or three people this season with one of those small things on top of there helmet. I can't tell but it almost looks glued on? Do you buy the camera or both as one? Does anyone know what a price range for any of the two would be....?

I'm curious if anyone knows someone with one or anything about them. I just hit a new kicker all day yesterday and if i had some way to show some people why i board. It would be real cool to watch to.

actually i dont think those are too expensive but to be honest i dont really think it would be worth it. I mean those first person shots do look cool but they get boring if you have a lot of them in a video because you cant see very much.
if you dont already have a regular video camera i would get one of those first. because you can film a lot wider variety of angles with a hand held one. and you can always hold one of those cameras and go off a jump with it to get the same effect

if yo u do already have a normal video camera id say go for the helmet cam and you can just bring both cameras to the hill

I belive they attach to your goggle strap. Have a search around the forum, you'll find it.

Some attach to the goggle strap, some actually are glued on...you can get those things anywhere from $100-$700+...I mean, I personally don't like them...I much prefer someone else filming...cheaper and you get better results

A guy I lodged with in Japan this year had a helmt with a built in attachment for the camera, adjustable pivoting bracket and everything. Lightweight camera with a remote battery pack that he kept in his pocket as well. No idea what brand it was tho.

Check out the new ContourHD helmet camera from VholdR. It's honestly amazing what capturing footage in HD does for your collection.

A buddy of mine used to have one of these. The shots of him just riding usually weren't very entertaining, but we also got to see everything from when he was watching us. To me, that was cooler than his personal runs.

Invest in a tripod.
