    POV/Helmet Cam resources master thread

    For reasons probably having to do with inability to search, laziness to search, desire to be hand-held and other sundry reasons questions about POV cameras come up again and again.

    Another better mounting options for the Vholdr ContourHD then the lazy way of just sticking it on your head:


    I took delivery and had my first rides over the weekend at Austin's Lake Travis' Pace Bend and Muleshoe Bend Trail Systems. Rock Steady Mount.

    Also, one more if I may, What a Professional Cinematographer thinks of the Contour HD: http://www.tomguilmette.com/wp/my-blog/archives/2500 Search his site further for his peice on taking the contour HD to work--he actually shot footage with it of the set up of the "big cams" at an arena/stadium somewhere. Interesting, unique peice of work.

    I forgot to mention - please feel free to put up information or links YOU find useful in this thread. I would prefer if the thread isn't cluttered with questions to which there probably are already answers but people being people, I'm sure that will happen
