Cam Jam: DIY Helmet Camera

December 18, 2008 - By 

Are you excited about the ski/snowboard season coming up? I sure am. Helmet cameras are so cool, but pretty expensive. Want cool footage from your trip, without the cost? Worry no more. Thread the strap of a small digital camera (one that shoots video of course) around your goggles and shove it between your goggles and your helmet for a quick and dirty Helmet Cam. I nicknamed it the “Cam Jam” last year when I used it to make this video in Salt Lake City.

Don’t forget to link your videos if you use the Cam Jam this year.

  • This is the greatest idea EVER. I’m always fumbling with my camera to get shots of my buddies on our ski trips. This January in Jackson Hole – it’s gonna be the CAM JAM all the way!

  • the payoff for me is you laughing at yourself at the end… I know it happened.

  • Ahhh…Cam Jam. I had forgotten all about that. Good times…

  • You are so lovely i am chinese from shanghai , Really really good idea !

  • That is quite the idea. I like it, man. It must be difficult to consistenly remind yourself to not look around and move your kneck too quicky. Very exciting.

  • Interesting idea but you can also use one of the velcro “Flip Action Mount for Flip Ultra and Mino Camcorders” for about $15. They should work on any camera and you can thread them through the top of your helmet. Funny idea though!

  • These devices are helpful even for water sports because some of them are water-proof and even weather-proof. If you are adventurous by nature and are looking for a device that can capture all your memorable moments.

  • Very good blog article. Awesome.
