Helmet Cams

I'm interested in getting a helmet cam, but I don't really know anything about them. I was wondering what everyone has used and what would be good to get if I do decide to get one. Sure would make for some cool footage to remember going on riding trips and to share our trails with others.

There are two that I would highly recommend, but do not own yet. (birthdays just 13 days away and all)

One would be the Oregon Scientific:

or the GoPro Motorsports Wide:

You can youtube vids of all of them.

I like the smaller one because...well it's smaller, but the GoPro has the wide angle the looks really nice.

Thanks, I think the Oregon is about what I'd be interested in. I want to make sure I get a good enough one that is worth it but since I've never used one before I don't want to spend too much on it and find out that I don't use it much.

My Friends use the GoPro during racing and they like them the best. They work great.

If I was to get one I think i'd mount it on the quad, so it wouldn't really be necessary to get an actual helmet cam, but i've seen videos where they have been mounted on bikes.

The Oregon Scientific isn't that bad:




The GoPro kinds looks silly:

Here is a cam system I'm looking at... It can take the higher vibrations and still be steady with the picture...small enough to mount pretty mucy anywhere on you or the machine for some interesting angles.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely and in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting "Holy Crap, What a Ride!"
