Snowmobile ATV Helmet Cameras For Snowcross Racing, Trail Riding, and Mountain Climbing

The winter months of the year bring ice, snow and sleet. Summertime activities for snowmobile and ATV enthusiasts can also involve drag racing on grass, asphalt strips, or even across water. For these conditions there are a few options to consider when choosing the best helmet camera for riding in all these conditions.

Not all helmet cameras are built for the most extreme weather environments such as snow and ice. Look for a bullet camera style camera that provides Waterproof and anti fogging recording capabilities. If you already have a compatible camcorder, the 580 Ex View bullet cams can be integrated with your camcorder simply by connecting it to the A/V input. You may also use a DVR as a recording device. A 580 Ex View bullet camera scans 580 lines of high resolution video and includes a high gain two channel external microphone to capture sound. The helmet mounts are durable and can be moved from one location to another. The Ex view bullet cams use a .1 lux sensor which is excellent for low light conditions. As long as you are using a light source, the 580 Line Ex-View CCD camera will work at night or in the dark.

Another option for recording is an all digital Ultimate DVR Helmet Cam Video System like the VIO-POV camera . This system includes an LCD screen for reviewing recorded video and setting up your shots. This video camera has a 5 Lux color sensor and a sub .1 lux monochrome sensor. The Vio has a ten foot radius remote control for ease of recording. This camera provides options of clip mode, loop mode, continuous recording and video segments with tags. The video system requires 4 AA batteries with a record times exceeding 4 hours at the highest resolution. This unit is compatible up to an 8 GB SDHC card. The lens is a 2.9 mm which is a 110 degree field of view, for the wider field of view with focus being closer.

A helmet camera makes a great gift for the outdoor winter sports athlete in your family. Whether you're skiing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, skating, sledding, or just having a snow ball fight, be sure to save every last moment on video with a helmet cam. When purchasing a helmet cam, it is recommend to contact a reputable, established dealer , with toll free number for any questions and special holiday pricing. A friendly, helpful voice will reassure you that you your helmet cam purchase will be handled with attention to detail and care.

Winter Fun in Minnesota

For those of you that do not experience the changes of the seasons may find it difficult to discover something fun to do in the winter.  Well let me assure you that winter activities are abundant here in Minnesota.  Here are some options that the whole family will enjoy. 

First, check out the Minnesota Department of Natural Resource Site (DNR) for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snow shoeing opportunities.  They also list snow conditions, trail maps, special winter events, where to find parks that have access to winter activities and any required fees. 

For example, in order to cross-country ski in Minnesota you have to purchase a Minnesota Ski Pass.  This pass is required if you ski in any State Parks or forest, or on State trails, or Grant-in-Aid Trails.  The required passes are for anyone 16 years of age and above.  The money incurred from this are used to support the ski trail system in the state.  There are three ways to purchase this pass either as a daily fee of $6.00 dollars or $20.00 dollars for one season or a three season pass of $55.00 dollars. 

On the other hand, maybe snowshoeing would be your activity of choice.  You would need to use the website to see what state parks have access to snow shoeing and snow conditions.  In fact, I would use the website to help verify which state parks offer snowshoes to rent for around $6.00 dollars.  There are usually separate trails to snow shoe on not the same ones used for cross-country skiing.  Hiking out on a trail in the wintertime with snow falling is a beautiful backdrop compared to a summer hike. 

However, maybe your fun is to sit behind a big sled and hit the trails in the state parks or Grant-In-Aid trails.  Once again the state of Minnesota does require an annual fee of around $16.00 dollars to permit riding on designated trails. Of course, not having the sticker could result in a fine.  There are over 20,000 miles of groomed trails to choose from.  Local snowmobile club volunteers maintain most of the trails.  The website also explains how and where to purchase the sticker. 

Therefore, these were just a few of the fun winter activities that one can do in the land of 10,000 lakes.  Another list could include, but not limited to, ice fishing, ice skating, down-hill skiing, snowboarding sledding, winter camping, ice hockey, dog sledding, skijoring to name a few.  If you live in Minnesota it is a wonderful time of the year to get out and experience something new.  Besides that a little vitamin D and exercise will do a body good.
