    um.. cool?

    Its a good idea as long as it is comfortable and secure but you can still freely move your head around.

    One thing that surprises me is that all the action cameras seem to use quite slow glass, f/2.5 isn’t too bad but give you get f/2 – f2.2 on phones i thought that would be able to get down to f1.8 or at least f/2. I know the depth of field would be shallower but when its low light that’s not so vital plus these sensors are normally so small anyway it wouldn’t make much if a difference.
