We should probably describe what this "thing" is...
It is a remotely mounted video lens, coupled to a LANC trigger, piping digital video to a DV camcorder housed in the backpack. Oh..OK... your next question is probably WHY????
Well, it allows us to record what we see just by moving our head and hitting the remote trigger. The lens can also be mounted on the backpack strap on the shoulder, on a helmet, on a bike, in the car....you get the idea :-)
You can go to the Viosport site and check out some of the videos :-)
We have some detail instructions on how to make your own AdventureCAM pack. We are also looking into putting together a setup using an MPEG4 recorder, flash memory, and an extended power pack. The video quality will me much lower with MPEG4. However, using a MPEG4 recorder and a removeable flash card will greatly simplify the process of getting the video ready for webcasts.
