rant on stupid helmet cameras

here is my rant of the day

I've noticed over the past weekend that more and more people are skiing and riding with cameras on thier helmuts

here is my take if you rip then i have no problem with this but to see the overweight tourist skier wedge turning with a helmet cam on just stupid.  It seems the vast majority of folks with these cameras are far from ripping.

who wants to watch on utube a fat dad wedge turning?

Who cares if they want a camera they can buy one this only will help the technology of the hd cameras. They sell bikinis to all shapes of people not just models. No one says you have to watch.
Want to spend special time with your children, teach them to ski or snowboard. The reward will be endless!

Don't you know it's a safety issue.  If some out of control snowboarder or skier runs the dad or his kid down, then there's a record for the ski patrol and lawyers.

I've been doing some research....I think the V.I.O. POV HD sounds like the best so far. It's pricey but offers more than comparable cams including the bestselling GoPro. Here's a Youtube review by a guy who rides trail bikes in the UK who has checked out all the POV cams. V.I.O. is his recommendation for the best out there.

I think by classifying it as a rant, you get an extra layer of immunity.

Maybe in the off topic, we could have "The Rant Thread."  

Then you could be totally out there and you'd be cloaked in a cone of acceptability.

Condor just got an LCD display for his GoPro, it's pretty sweet, if I do say so myself.

Any reports from the field on screen brightness in daylight and whether it drains the battery significantly?  Just curious...saw a complaint about these two things by a reviewer on Amazon.
