Yes, they are not so good if your subject is in the distance... On the plus side it makes things look steeper and more dramatic...
not climbing but here are some vids ive shot on the contour roam and a
drift hd both 170 degree lenses
Am wondering if this a technique thing as I've seen some stunning stuff done with an SLR. Can't think or anything similar with a helmet cam. If anything watching them just makes me feel seasick!
A couple of video using my Contour headcam. The first winter one, I think was just using the head camera while the second one I use both my normal camera as well as the headcam.
You have to try and make an effort not the keep looking around and keep your head steady. It's easier to use the headcam in winter climbing or when skiing as you are not constantly looking around for the climbing holds which induces nausea!!!
The other problem with the headcam is that it takes ages to edit the video as you can only use a small selection of the footage or it can very boring!!!
Finally the last video I was mainly using my normal camera with few shots from the headcam.
There's quite a few other headcam videos on my YouTube page.
Hope these help...
No most of the recent ones including the Frendo were shot with a weatherproof Panasonic Lumix DMC TL2/TS2.
The Contour HD 1080 video clips mostly have a orange helmet or tuft of hair on one side of them and are very wide angle!!
Incidentally I'm selling the Lumix TL2/TS2 camera.
