I guess skiing helmets are not as strong(never used one)

I think my skiing helmet is at least as strong (albeit less padded - but I go slower on skis, but not slow, than I do on the Stripler) as my Shoei bike helmet

I don't know the details about what happened to Schumi but for me, the worry is more that a thing like a camera stuck to the (side/ top/ chin) of your lid could *possibly* catch on the road and act as a lever, rapidly twisting your neck as you tumble/slide. That said, every off is different and its the luck of the draw. Same as whether there happens to be street furniture or 200 meters of grass in your path... I can't imagine a helmet cam lessening injury in any way, but whether it makes it worse in any given scenario is pretty hard to quantify, so each to their own regarding the risks.
That said, I do sometimes think I'd be tempted to get one if it was low profile enough to minimise this risk, just for the benefits of recording any incidents for insurance purposes.

I opted for the sena prism tube in the end as it seemed to be the lowest profile cam available. probably not the best in terms of picture quality but good enough as evidence in the event of an accident.

That was the one I was looking at.

The Sena Tube does look good, but given how microscopic smartphone cameras have become, I am surprised by how bulky all action cams continue to be :003:

True. Smartphones are a lot wider though. In that tube diameter they have to fit the circuit board, and of course the bigger the battery the better. Plus when it comes to lenses, there is no escaping the laws of physics, in spite of all the clever tech and image processing.

I did this with my lid yesterday. That sugru stuff is amazing. Left it 24 hours and its solid as a rock. Just waiting for the attachments and Ill test it out.

Test the camera by all means, but do NOT test the lid.  Please.   :038:
