Into extreme sports? Then you'd want to invest in a good quality wearable camera. After all, it would be such a waste if you don't capture those daredevil moves you risk your life for. Before, adventure enthusiasts simply relied on their memories to relive and relate the adrenalin rush they felt when they did their stunts to their family and friends. Now, however, the power of technology has actually made it possible for everyone, including the athletes themselves, to view the whole adventure.

Mountable wearable cameras come in all shapes, sizes and prices and it's up to you to determine the one that suits your needs. Here are a few tips to get you started on your search.

First off, you'd want to determine what sport you need a wearable camera for. Is it going to be for skydiving, snowboarding or off road motorcycle racing? If you need it for surfing, you're going to have to get one that's waterproof, obviously. Depending on how "brutal," your sport is (if it's going to involve a lot of knocks and bumps), you're going to need a camera that's enclosed in a hard removable casing and one that's extremely durable as well. If you need or simply want a gadget that can capture a wide-angle view, then you'd want to choose a cam that can be attached to your helmet. Otherwise, if it's for something that you might want to attach to your bike's handlebars, your surfboard or your chest, make sure to purchase one with the appropriate mounting kit.

Next, you'd want to consider your budget. Depending on the brand, prices of wearable cameras vary widely. Of course, standard definition cameras are a lot cheaper than high definition cameras. But for clearer videos involving lots of action, high definition is the recommended choice. If you just need one to capture hiking moments with your dog then standard definition would do just as well. However, the best rule of thumb to follow is if you can afford it, then go for one that gives you the best image, the best resolution and the best video quality. Remember that your camera is going to be with you for a long while, so you need to invest in one that won't get destroyed easily.

Another important consideration that's important when it comes to shopping for wearable cameras is whether it can store your recordings for a long time. You have to grow old sometime. And there will come a time when age and infirmity (if your sport doesn't get the better of you first) won't allow you to do these things that you are now doing. While all wearable cameras now will become obsolete in the future, it is still possible to preserve the memories long enough for your grand children to see what a cool granddad you are. You'll just have to choose one with a long-term storage medium. This isn't much of a problem, though, since you can transfer your videos into your PC where you can save and create backups so they can still be viewed 30 years from now.

Wearable cameras are cool gadgets that make extreme sports fun and exciting to watch. Now that you already have these tips to guide you, it's time to shop for that perfect wearable camera.
