    Hi Tom, in a few years time when I retire I am hoping to cycle around the British coastline, nothing original in that, but I would like to film it as I go, yes I know that will be a lot, but could you suggest a helmet cam that would give me enough memory for each days ride, obviously edited later. Hope this gives you enough info to go on.
    Many thanks and keep up the good work, Mark

      Assuming you just want to make a short film with music and no story, or you want to film it for your own records, I’d probably get a GoPro with a handlebar/frame mount rather than a helmet camera. You’ll get a more stable image that way. Buy as many removable memory cards as you need.

      If you want to make a film with any kind of story, dialogue, characters, visual variety, etc, an action camera is not going to be very useful.

      Hope that helps – if Mike Carter’s book is anything to go by it should be a fantastic trip!
