Comparison of video editing software
There are many video editing programs available,
both freeware and commercial. The Wikipedia entry has a comprehensive
list and is helpful if you are looking for a software package to use.
These are non-linear editting programs. This means that they are non-destructive,
and do not modify the original source files. Although this process
is more computationally intensive than directly modifying the original
content, changing the edits themselves can be almost instantaneous,
and it prevents further generation loss as the audio, video, or image

History and Evolution of Action Cameras
This article tells the story of sports camcorders,
from early attempts to capture first person footage in the 1960's
onwards. The Canon Ci-10 from 1985 had 3.8 megapixels and could transmit
wirelessly from a motorcyclist's helmet by microwave. Mark Shulze
used a VHS camera on his helmet connected to a VHS recorder in his
backpack to film "The
Great Mountain Biking Video" in 1987. In the 1990s American
Football players used helmet cams to broadcast live TV footage. From
2002 onwards saw the young GoPro™ founder, Nicholas Woodman,
create the first Hero product. This was a 35mm waterproof film model
that attached to a wrist strap and cost around $20.

Windsurf Magazine - P.O.V. Filming
All your windsurfing buddy’s are out
sailing and there‘s no way they are going to stop their session
to film you. There’s no chance that the other half is going
to sit and film for hours, and when you finally make the move you've
been working on they will have probably fallen asleep by then anyway.
This is a problem many of us have with outdoor sports photography.
This guide to windsurf self-filming has information on various mounts
and angles you can use.
The Wikipedia entry is interesting reading. It has an overview of
what these camcorders are and how they are typically used. It also
has details of the growing market. Apparently sales of actioncams
have already surpassed sales of conventional compact photo models
and camcorders. It is predicted that by 2019 actioncam sales will
surpass sales of all other types of conventional models, which are
declining or stable.
