Wearable cameras have become extremely popular especially for capturing action. There are a lot of options for these types of cameras out there and more are becoming available all the time. In the broader category of wearable cameras we are now seeing things like Google Glass. There’s a lot of uses for these types of portable video cameras. I’ve seen a lot of–cam footage on YouTube lately especially from other parts of the world. There’s lots of interesting video captured from cameras mounted on people’s cars and vehicles showing crashes and near misses etc. Some of this might fall into the category of citizen journalism. You also see a lot of this type of video captured by law enforcement. Some of this has been used in court to protect officers and in some cases the citizens. But still the most popular video is capturing extreme sports sports. It’s become a big part of entertainment for us on the Internet. I specifically love the GoPro videos with their amazing footage time with epic soundtracks. It’ll be interesting to see as these technologies get less expensive and more acceptable to see how people use them. I’ve tried a few of these but I own a GoPro I just love it. It’s been a great way to capture our family adventures. I love all the accessories and options for mounting the GoPro for me this is what makes it stand out.
Here is a video produced by my boys Evan and Alec of some of our adventures.
