What are helmet cameras?
A helmet camera, otherwise known as a micro video camera, bullet camera, or lipstick camera, is a camera attached to a helmet allowing someone to make a visual record from their point of view (POV), while keeping their hands and vision free.
San Diego Director of Photography, Mark Schulze, is believed to have invented the video helmet cam during the 1987 production of "The Great Mountain Biking Video," This video was "the world's first mountain biking video" and the first in a series of how-to mountain biking videos produced by Mark Schulze. He mounted the first available chip camera made by RCA, to a motorcycle helmet. The camera fed signal via cable to a VCR stuffed into a padded backpack. Upon removing the rig after a particular ride, the wearer would inevitably exclaim, "This thing's HEAVY!" This pioneering hardware eventually gave way to button and lipstick cameras.
Schulze also created additional POV mounts for the bike including under the seat post looking forward and under the bottom bracket to see the wheel and trail. The helmet cam soon became a standard piece of equipment, worn by BMX riders, surfers, skiers, skydivers and other sports aficionados, to record and share their experiences.
With the advent of digital cameras, and smaller camera production, came advancement in the helmet camera field. Helmet cameras shrank in size to that of a marker and began recording to digital recorders with video displays.
The newest generation of helmet cameras offer features like on-screen menus, high-definition format, wireless transmitting to an offsite recording device, waterproof enclosures and 3D capabilities.
