Helmet Camera Buyers Guide


There I Was...
Helmet cams can capture
everything from the brace
to beat-down.


The GoPro HD Cam by Mike Stoll
So you ran the gnar, canoed up to a bear, and sea kayaked under a whale spout. Where's the proof? Without it, it's just another tall boating tale. Luckily, there's a new crop of Point of View (POV) cameras that make capturing these moments easier. Here's some PL guidelines to help you make an informed buying decision to backing up your abducted-by-UFOs claim...

Know your Application
Knowing your application is the first step. What type of event will you be shooting? Will the camera be exposed to water? What time of day will you be shooting? How important is audio quality? How and were will you mount the camera? Having a good understanding of your application will help in the decision making process. If you can describe your application to someone at a camera store, they should be able to recommend a few cameras for your consideration.

Seek "Expert" Advice
As mentioned above, camera stores have a good understanding of the products they are selling. Some of their staff are camera users themselves, and have tried various cameras in a variety of shooting environments. They should be able to recommend specific cameras based on your shooting application, personal preferences, and budget. There are several camera retailers out there, so feel free to chat with a few of them and compare their answers.

Products Reviews
Product reviews are another great way to collect information on cameras. I will type in the camera model and the word "review/s" in the Google search field to see what pops up. Also, camera stores will often publish their own product reviews that provide a lot of information for potential buyers.

Product Comparisons
When shopping for a camera, there are several key features to consider, including field of view, video quality, recording capacity, pricing, media format, size, available options, etc. Having a side by side comparison is very helpful in comparing the features of different cameras. Stores like www.helmetcameracentral.com often have a comparison chart on their website to help buyers in their decision-making process.

Cash to Spend
Camera prices can range anywhere from $150 for entry-level cameras to over $2,000 for professional grade cameras. Knowing how much money you have to spend will help in the selection process. Most good quality
cameras run between $200 - $350. Prosumer grade cameras run between $500 - $800 dollars, and professional grade cameras like the Sony HXR-MC1 will run around $2,500.

Video Quality - Standard Definition (STD) vs High Definition (HD)
STD (DVD quality) and HD (High Definition quality) are the two levels of quality that are currently available. HD cameras provide better video quality, and a wide-screen perspective versus STD. If your intent is to only post video on YouTube, a standard definition camera may...
