Playing with my GoPro HD Helmet Cam

I was pleasantly surprised by the GoPro gift from my twin brother. He bought it for me for skiing and in his words to “enhance” my blog.  I couldn’t wait and decided to wear it on my helmet for my commute into work. While I’m a total newbie to the camera, the GoPro took some great HD video!

Going forward I will have to get the chest mount for skiing to reduce the motion from the head while skiing. However, on my first commute with it mounted with the headlamp like strap it performed amazing….at least I thought so.

The camera shoots HD video in 1080p, 960p and 720p and also takes 1080p still photos. I will not bore you with the technical details as you can find more on the GoPro site.

The uses for this waterproof camera are endless for anyone who enjoys sports, especially high motion sports (biking, skiing, surfing, etc). This is also a great tool for instruction if you are with a patient friend who will take some video of your turns! All around good fun for everyone.

Check out my first video with it from my commute yesterday. While I need to improve editing it’s a work in progress. Please let me know what you think!
