You don’t have to be extreme to want a helmet cam to record a first-person view of your high jinx, but that is the market to which most of these camcorders’ manufacturers push their products. There’s nothing saying you can’t strap one to your head and walk around a comic convention or just walk down the street to make an interesting YouTube video. Whatever you plan to use for the helmet cam, you have to know that it has come a long way in just a short time—even models that were top of the line last year have taken a backseat to the new crowd. So here are four cameras that will do what you need them to. They will work in pretty much any situation.

Contour+ Helmet Cam

The Contour+ helmet cam is one of the bulkiest in this lineup. It’s basically an upgrade from the Contour which-in itself-is a highly capable little machine. So what do you get for the near $500 price tag?
Helmet Cameras
The camera takes full HD video (1080p) at 30 frames per second. It has a built-in GPS function for added versatility and has a super-wide viewing angle (up to 170 degrees) from the lens (which is rotatable, so you can get a level shot every time or get creative if you feel like inducing a little nausea in your viewers).
One of the coolest features is the Bluetooth compatibility. You can use this feature to sync your helmet camera to a smartphone (Android is coming soon but there’s an IOs app in the App store already) and turn your device into a mobile viewfinder, so you can always line up the perfect shot. I wouldn’t recommend doing so while riding a bicycle through Manhattan streets however.
To get your lovely digital creations off the camcorder, there are a variety of methods available. Of course, the built-in SD card slot means you can just remove the memory and go from there, but this camera also has a built-in HDMI port so you can send that data to any HD TV or compatible computer. Heck, the company even throws in an HDMI cord “saving” you $20-$50.

Love to hear what you think! Thanks Would make us Smile :)
