Check this shit out....

Jump time gear just became a dealer for these guys. It looks pretty cool.

I'm about to put in an order. Let me know if you have something specific you want already.

Cheers,

Very cool... it looks like it might be good for the average fun jumper that just wants some basic video capabilities.

I was talking to a couple guys, visiting Twin Falls, that were dealers too.  Those cameras take really nice video for their size.  Fairly cheep, and they have waterproof cases available.  I was really surprised by the quality of the picture.

Is it lighter than the cameras most our folks jump with? Or just cheaper? Can't really get a feel for that from their website...

it looks like a little handheld still camera...  I would assume it's much lighter, it looks like a fatter version of my Exilm point & shoot

It's so much smaller than you think from the picture. I was amazed. Can't wait to play with one myself.

I think  these are seriously exciting times for our community as far as video goes. It's going to become so accessible for more people and
will be ideal for people with a couple of hundred jumps wanting to start getting video without it being a major distraction.
 
You can just stick one on some part of your body and completely forget about it asides from turning it on. It's like a wearing a neptune if
you use the wrist mount!!!

Don't worry Mindy, you'll get to see one up close very very soon. Sooner than you thought probably.

By the way, and completely random:

Any luck with that life insurance policy on your husband yet?

Funny that, Adrienne. Much sooner and certainly more up close than anticipated. *sigh* At least he had it hooked up to the dog's harness when I got home. Cause, you know, that way I could see what a great buy it was.

I still need to make him get a physical before I can take any the really good policies. The need for this to happen is getting greater and greater. Anybody know any good doctors in the area? :P

So, what do they cost and how are people mounting them to their helmets?  I'm assuming the mount is pretty secure?

It's just 3M double sided tape.  I guess you pretty much have to pry it off with a screw driver.

They are $200 for everything. Like Max side it's really strong double sided tape. Mine took a few good hits this weekend and stayed on. Including trying to barrel roll a hybrid where it was smashing into whoreshacks head the whole jump.
