Anybody out there using head-mounted cameras to record video of
themselves doing work? I don’t have a helper to handle the camera,
and I’d love to record what I do. It’s a pain to stop after each
operation and shoot with a still camera, and it means my hands are
never in the photo with the tools or metal. (I used to be able to
talk & fly at the same time, so I figure I can talk & solder or saw
at the same time and not draw blood.)
What do you use, and what do you like/not like about your camera?
What file format does it shoot (.mov,.avi, etc), how close will it
focus, how is the sound, what kind of lighting works best?
I’m going to gift myself with two major tools soon - a hydraulic
press, and a head-mounted camera.
There are ‘sports’ cameras out there are sound ideal
except…closest focus is 2 feet. So that probably wouldn’t cut it.
If you make your own video (without assistance or assistants!), what
would you recommend to me?
Thanks for your time,
