Helmet POV Video Cameras Comparison

Helmet cameras, aka point of view cameras have made a huge impression on the action sports scene in the last few years. The advent of these small, rugged gear mounted cameras makes it easy to shoot wide angle action scenes like you see on ESPN without breaking your neck.

Helmet cam manufacturers have also been very competitive with each other, bringing out better spec'd models with HDTV resolution, improved sound, BlueTooth capabilities, and more at very aggressive prices.

Top brands like Contour, GoPro, Drift Innovation, V.I.O., and Liquid Image are popular choices among skiers, snowboarders, surfers, motorsport racers, skydivers, scuba divers and other action sports enthusiasts.
