Default 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

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.

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

Thanks
Bob

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.

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
