But it’s not just any video camera, it’s miniature, and shock proof. I won’t bore you with the technical specs, you can read all about it here.
Naturally, the reason I wanted to borrow it was to get some footage of mountain biking, which I did:
It’s not great (but at £70, I didn’t expect broadcast quality), and it’s quite weird how it seems to flatten everything off (some of the drops on the video are actually quite large but look tiny), but it’s a start. I think I need to work on mounting it better, and trying to move my head less. I also need to do it when there’s a bit more daylight around, but since it’s 32+ celcius (and humid) during the day here at the moment, that’ll have to wait.
