Head strap for my action camera

I have made a few attachments for my otek action camera. I see it also goes by the name of pqi aircam. On my fishing trip with Cuba I could see that I needed something that was hands free. The head cam looked like a very good option. I had a old headlamp at home so I used some parts from that. The elastic that goes around the head is just the stuff used in pants or undies.

So here is some test footage below, that I am very happy with. I am thinking that it might just need to go down a fraction as I would like to see my hands more. I will do more testing.  For round one I am excited.

OTEK Sportz

I got my hands on a OTEK Sportz camera through the daddys deals website. It was a good bargain compared to the GOPRO. I am not sure who imports them for now. The camera has been lots of fun. I have managed to shoot a lot of video and having a blast with the time lapse setting. I have uploaded a bit of footage to my youtube channel, feel free to subscribe. Now my next mission is to get some fishingski footage. I am hoping to do that soon. The one thing that is lacking is the amount of attachments for the camera. Lucky I am rather resourceful and I have made a few attachments, check my gallery below. I am going to be making a few more accessories as I see what my needs are. So if you have one of these  OTEK Sports cameras and need some extra fittings just let me know and I will see what I can do. The guys from action gear where also super helpful gave me a universal accessory that I needed.

 

Different Perspective on Camera Angles

version 2
version 2

I saw a picture on the internet a while ago taken with a gopro. It was from the perspective of the camera on the water looking back at the person on the boat. I have been keen on getting that kind shot ever since I got my camera. So I made myself a mini raft. The first one did not quite work how I wanted it. So I made version 2.

This is it in the picture on the right. I then just did a small test and put the camera on the dam in time lapse mode and left it there until the battery went flat. I cant wait until summer so I can test this on the dam with some bass fishing.

Here is the time lapse video of it on the dam.
