Retiring Princess Leia

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… I made a contraption to enable me to strap a camcorder to my head whilst I skiied. As you can see, it wasn’t the most subtle of devices.


Well, times change. I upgraded my camcorder this year because I wanted a device with DV in for archive purposes. The new camera also has AV in and for Christmas Michelle bought me a weatherproof bullet camera which can plug into the AV in on the camcorder. A few pieces of industrial velcro and the bullet cam can be securely mounted to my ski helmet, it’s so small you’d hardly know it’s there. The camcorder can stay in the backpack and the wired LANC remote means I can control the camera whilst I ski.

Expect an update after our trip to Meribel in a couple of weeks.
