    Headcam

    I did a search but couldn't find what I was looking for.
    Is their a decent wearable head camera to video your own flights when no one else is around?

    Thanks
    Bob

    RE: Headcam

    Bob,
    I haven't seen one on the market, but this is what I use. I took one of my camera mounts and frankenstined it to one of my wife's chip clips. It works good for what I'm doing,and the camera only cost 20.00.

    RE: Headcam

    What brand/make/model is your camera?
    Is it a fixed focal length?

    Thanks
    Bob

    RE: Headcam

    Hi Bob,
    It's one of these:

    You can get them all over the place. The cheapest I've found is EBay.
    Yes, it's a fixed focal length. It takes 640x480 30fpsvideo w/ sound. Mine has a 4GB memory stick, so it'll take about ah hour of video.
    Here's a sample.

    RE: Headcam

    Now that's an interesting and informative link, Thanks.

    I found one that should be here in a couple of days.
    After I check it out, I'll let you know how it works.

    I'm more interested in using it as a headcam and filming some close in 3D type stuff.
    There aren't usually many people that are willing to stand around and hold a camera while we fly.

    Have a good weekend.
    Bob
