        SportsCam TM
EXTREME SPORTS VIDEO SYSTEM Patent Pending

         The SportsCam Video System is an extreme sports camera developed as a skydiving helmet camera  to remove the dangerous weight and bulk of a video camera from the skydiving videographer's helmet without the loss of picture quality.

The SportsCam Video System provides:

One touch power up, standby, & record functions
Security from camera-related injuries & fatalities
No camera profile for easier exits from low head-room aircraft
Nearly eye level sighting
Protection of expensive video camcorder
Almost no lens fogging in moist conditions
Instant availability of the video camcorder for normal use
Visual verification of camera & power status
Faster & cleaner freefall flying
Elimination of camera weight on helmet

The SportsCam Video System virtually eliminates:
Whiplash neck injuries
Dangerous camera/gear entanglements
Preparation of camera during jump run
Parallax sighting problems
Expensive video camera damage
Camera & lens moisture problems
Wasted video tape
Questions of camera status
Camera air resistance in freefall
Neck & shoulder muscle fatigue

                               The SportsCam Video System includes:

                                          (1) Remote Video Head (RVH)

                                          (1) Universal Helmet Mount and hardware

                                          (1) Camera Body Pouch

                                          (2) Harness Tie Down Straps    

                                          (1) RVH Helmet Cable 

                                          (1) RVH Extension Cable

                                          (8) AAA Alkaline batteries  

                                          (1) 12 volt RVH Battery Pack

                        User's Manual and 30 day money back guarantee

         The RVH is a miniature video camera attached to a universal helmet mount on the helmet. It is connected to the Camera Body Pouch via a special cable (Helmet Cable and RVH Extension Cable) routed through the jump suit. The picture quality is excellent. Most people cannot see any quality difference between the normal camcorder picture and the one from the RVH.

         The Camera Body Pouch contains and protects a standard video camcorder (NOT Included) which acts as the tape recording module. The pouch is attached at the waist to the parachute harness with special harness straps and acts as a control center to power up and down the camcorder. Highly visible LED lights indicate the camera status at all times.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:The video camcorder must be a SONY, the only manufacturer which includes a "LANC" jack as a standard feature on almost all of its models as well as an "AV" jack. Another feature necessary for use in the SportsCam system is a "Record" function in the VCR (or VTR) mode. Note that some model cameras do NOT have this feature.

         The Camera Body Pouch houses a single multifunction control button which switches the camcorder from standby to record and back with matching indicator lights visible even in broad daylight.

        In short, the camcorder can be used as a normal handheld camera outside the pouch and then stowed in the pouch for freefall. Once in the pouch, it is ready to record at a moment's notice with the touch of a button. The pouch also contains the 12 volt battery pack for the RVH which, again, reduces the weight on the helmet.

The  price of the SportsCam Video System is $899.00.

DISCLAIMER: Although the SportsCam Video System is designed to be the safest freefall video system available, the manufacturer and/or distributor of SportsCam assumes no liability or responsibility for the user's safety. All extreme sports, by definition, including skydiving, have an element of inherent danger and, as such, the participant of these activities should take all possible precautions for their own safety. It cannot be stressed too strongly that the acquisition of knowledge and proficiency in any extreme sport should precede any attempt to incorporate photography.
