A good alternative to an Action Cam – the Camera Demon
If you fancy taking images and recording video on the slopes but you don’t want to spend cash on an action cam when you have a perfectly good compact camera at home, the Camera Demon might just be the answer
It is a fuss-free way of attaching your camera to your helmet using a standard 1/4-inch thread (which makes it compatible with almost any snapper) so that you can capture that footage. It doesn’t look like much – it basically consists of a chunk of plastic with rubber washer and metal screw thread set on a 3M adhesive pad.
There are a few limitations. For example you could place a digital SLR on the bracket, but it isn’t really advisable. It is also quite fiddly to move around once in place, in fact to remove the adhesive pad you need to blast it with a hair dryer.
Ultimately though this is £25 accessory and if you have a compact at that you want to take with you next time you hit the slopes or shoot off on your mountain bike then this represents excellent value for money.
