Stick with it maybe we can crowdfund you to keep it - on condition that you keep it rolling and post up any comedy incidents of yourself

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Yes but I'm fed up of looking like a teletubby and twatting it with the chairlift bar every time I get on or off

It's not just about the money!

Valid point but the chest mount is a pain to take on and off all day

U might as well embrace you're inner(or outer?) twat and go with a selfie-stick Wink

As DOTM says, you're the star baby - [mini]avalanches, falling in streams, collisions, the occasional non-fatal injury: that's the footage everyone wants to see! Toofy Grin

Sony 4k action cam? Found the quality rivals go pro and in light to dark a lot better. Plus it goggle mounted is no smacking on bar. That said, are you sure the smacking of the bar isn't just down to you general loftiness? ?!! Razz

The mini avalanche and the stream were the same incident... now there's 5 minutes of GoPro footage that I'll forever wish I'd recorded (largely because I don't really remember much of it either).

One day I'll upload the footage of the bin in Chamonix. I tried to get a bit clever skiing sideways, caught an edge and skied straight into a bin, which slowly teetered on the edge and then fell over. And a french instructor came up to my friends and says, in a comedic French accent (think: the taunter in Monty Python) Your friend? He just knocked over a bin!. It is funny.

It's worse on the italian lifts... I think Italians must be shorter. There was one lift where we couldn't shut the bar because I sat on the end and it literally wouldn't go over my head (or if it had we'd have never got it back up again)

That Sony one does look really good but I'm loathed to spend any more money on something that I already almost sold because I don't use it. It's not JUST the issue of looking like a teletubby. It's also that I frequently just forget to charge it or turn it on, and that also, let's face it, when you watch your own videos back they never look half as gnarly as the line felt when you did it. Sad

Basically when I'm in the moment, in my head I am a skiing god then when I watch it back on GoPro I look more like a skiing dog.

Im a GoPro telly tubby now but previously had a pair of Liquid Image HD goggles where the camera was built in. Slightly bulkier than standard goggles but gave a proper point of view angle and no need for something sticking out the top of your head!

I've got a couple edits on YouTube shot with the GoPro and with the Goggles (just search 'agl129'). The quality isn't quite at GoPro levels but the goggles are a fair few years old and newer versions are available now so it's probably improved slightly.

What I've basically decided is that I don't really want to take videos because they're not actually very exciting in the end.

What I want to do is set the camera onto a 1-photo-a-minute timelapse and just see what cool photos come out. I never take enough photos and I hope that if this thing is just clicking away all day it'll produce some nice images of it's own accord.

@arronlaw Tidy little video. Another option instead of being a telly tubby is the rucksack clamp for clamping on to strap.

@WASHOUT, thank you that's exactly what I wanted to do with my GoPro for the new plan. I still intend to do photos more than videos, but that rucksack clamp is perfect.

Although must remember to do it over the strap that doesn't have the airbag trigger running through it...
