*******PointofViewCameras****. Testing the GoPro HD high definition helmet cam while backcountry skiing near Highwood Pass, Kananaskis.
It's the highest point in Canada (2206 m / 7236), which may be reached by paved highway. We skied here on Nov 29th which is the last weekend before the highway closes for the weekend.
For this test I used the GoPro Head mount accessory since I was not wearing a helmet. Helmet would provided for a more stable mounting platform.
I chose to shoot the video in 960p (1280x960, 4:3) resolution to get the extra vertical height, which makes the video more stable.
Next time I'll wait for some better weather.
Hope you like it :-)

How to make your own rough and ready headcam/helmet cam for shooting videos at work.
I neglected to mention one important thing in the video. Look closely at the slot that I made in the hard hat. Near the front, I made a notch on both sides, about a half inch long from front to back, and just a teeny bit wider than the camera mounting plate. This is needed in order to be able to slide the plate into the slot in the hard hat.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I've just been informed by the Thought Police (ie: my wife) that I should not have used the words 'quick and dirty' as part of the title, as it doesn't sound good. Not too sure just why, but maybe the word 'dirty' sounds dirty. But what do you expect from a guy that digs in the dirt all day and then drives a garbage truck on the weekends?
...or maybe it's the word 'head'... don't know... maybe she thinks that 'head cam' sounds like 'head' cam, or maybe it's all the words together 'quick and dirty head',(though one would think that it might be a bit strange using a hard hat for that purpose, though I would suggest it be properly coordinated with a high vis vest).
So I hereby am instituting a new policy. From now on, you will be required to ignore the words 'quick and dirty' and 'head' in the title (Sorry, but I'm just not into retitling the vid just now). Instead, you must now refer to the video as the 'FAST, SIMPLE, BUT A BIT UNCLEAN NOGGIN CAM' video. Sorry folks, but rules are rules!
One last thing: If you do end up trying to make a noggin cam as per this video, I'd be very much interested to hear about it. And of course your comments are heartily invited.

A few bumps here and there.Year around riding for the most part.There is lots of traffic on weekends. So Getup early and have one of the Best rides in mid New Mexico! The sound on the video is not too good,but it was the first time out with a head cam.I'll figure it out,I hope.The headers on the V-strom sound like an hopped up 350 chevy when its cranked up.I wish the sound was better. Oh -it would be great if we had more than 100mb of video?? hard to get a feel for it? hey- Thanks Paul
