Default Debating About a Hat Cam For My Fishing Adventures

Do any of you all have a hat cam? I've been looking at getting one of these hats Hat Camera | Hatcams buying a Flip Mino HD off ebay. Any other suggestions. I'm thinking something like this, because i fish a lone a lot and this way I shoot while fishing. Though I think they look a bit dorky.

I am in... Sign me up...

I am a dork anyway and the fish don't care. I already have a wife and If I didn't you wouldn't use a stream as a pickup place anyway.

This last trip I was so freaked out about dropping my $300 Iphone I didn't take many pictures.

I like my floppy hat to shade my ears but I might just use a hat like this just to get some neat pics in the morning and use the floppy the rest of the day.

Thanks for the link

the go pro HD is your best bang for the buck. and you can mount it soooo many ways besides your head. and you can shoot with it underwater. or if you dropped it into the water its no big mistake, youll just have to find it. we use these alot during snowboarding and they are pretty indistructable i highly recommend one of these.

it can take 1080p and shoots 127degree view at 30fps or at 720p shoots 170 degrees at 60fps, so its got a nice wide angle and shoots lots of frames so you can slow the video down if youd like. also you can have it on a setting where it shoots 1 picture every 2 seconds

Hi Flybum,

I don't think you will look dorky at all. You for sure will look goofy.

Have to agree with Mac's suggestion (choice). My 'issue' would be the camera's mounted on a light weight hat ... far to easy for that to fall off your head as you're looking down?

The one Mac's suggested I've seen in action on several occasions and it really does a 'wiz-bang' job (and water proof).

Only thing folks who use these tend to forget is as you move your head, so moves the camera. Your eyes can adjust for that due to peripheral vision. The camera lens can't. Sloooooooow head movements are a must, and it takes some 'training' to get used the idea.

Look at the glasses that have cameras built in.. they're very light.

You will have to give up you favorite sunglasses, but the work great and you'll barely notice the weight.

Just an example:

Amazon.com: Sport Polaroid Lens Sunglasses with Digital Photo Video Camera Mini DVR (Availalbe in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB) + FREE Car Charger for IPOD: Clothing Amazon.com: Sport Polaroid Lens Sunglasses with Digital Photo Video Camera Mini DVR (Availalbe in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB) + FREE Car Charger for IPOD: Clothing

You can find cheap ones for about $20 - and then up to $200 - so shop around

I know a lot of people use them for USPSA shooting

Now that is unique! But the 'review' wasn't so hot.

There's dozens of them out there.. some much better than others.

The ones I've seen have worked fine. I just posted that as an example

Definitely something to research first, and read as many reviews as possible

With the GoPro does anyone know whether the Hero HD 960 is worth the extra $80 over the 170 for $100. The GoPro website doesn't tell much about the 960 model.
