Helmet cameras have grown in popularity as they allow you to film yourself in the first person point of view in whatever sport that you are performing. Some of the footage that can be captured in the first person POV can be pretty amazing.
In buying a helmet cam, one of the features that you’d want is something that is durable because the last thing you want is a small bump to the head that causes your camera to malfunction. The V.I.O POV.HD camera is one such camera that will hopefully be able to withstand the potential pounding it may receive as it is a rugged device that its manufacturers are claiming is shockproof, waterproof, dustproof and smashpoof. Putting aside its rugged attributes, this camera supports 1080p video recording and is able to give you a 142-degree perspective of the world around you. Captured video from this device is saved onto a 32GB SDHC which is located on a separate unit. The POV.HD camera comes with a 2-inch LCD display, is powered by four AA batteries and retails for $600.
