What is it that Candide Thovex, Tim Humphreys, Alana Blanchard and Call of Duty all have in common? Headcams. Intrigued? Read on…
There are times when we can’t be out shredding. It’s a sad day when we can’t shred, as I’m sure you’ll agree, but when those days happen we’ve always got a back-up – gaming. Yes, we’re gamers and we’re not afraid to say it either.
One of our favourite games is easily Call of Duty and we’ve heard some pretty special things about the new game. Apart from it clearly going to be a bit badass, they’re giving away a ’1080p HD Tactical Camera’ when you buy the Prestige Edition. It also comes with a 4gb memory card AND editing software so you can go out, shred and film it all on your Call of Duty POV camera.
This got us thinking though – the world has created some pretty amazing headcam footage over the years but which ones are our favourites? It’s a good question and we’re glad we asked ourselves because we were allowed to spend days watching headcam edits purely to surface with a definitive 6 favourites and here they are:
1. One of the world’s best skiers has some fun on the slopes dropping off huge drops, backflipping and slaloming fellow skiers.
2.How many times have you seen someone ski BASE off of the Matterhorn? After this video it’ll be at least once!
3. The unspoken King of headcam edits, Tim Humphreys, shows us why he’s so good at what he does.
4.Insane footage from the Red Bull Rampage
5. If Alana Blanchard looks good out of water you can imagine how good she looks IN IT.
6. One of the more inventive ways to film using a POV camera and this edit from etnies gives us an interesting insight into what we’d see if we were the skateboard!
So there you have some pretty inspiring footage for you to grab your Call of Duty headcam and start filming! If you’re a big fan of the Call of Duty series anyway and want to clock eyes on the single player video (we have no idea how you haven’t seen it yet) then the video below will blow your mind.
