Neat. It makes me want to wear a camera around too.

I like the camera he used for the videos. Its small and does well at night, but unfortunately the manufacturer warns that you shouldn’t use rechargeable batteries in it. Kind of out of the question for me to eat through non-rechargeable batteries for a daily commute.

I like his downhill helmet. Since my last fall, I’ll been thinking about getting one.

I have a GoPro, but I haven’t used it in years. It crashed a few times and I gave up on it (it fell of a motorcycle at 45mph).

I wish Mr. Parker had that camera on him when he got hit by the pick-up truck. (http://bike-pgh.org/bbpress/topic/cyclist-killed-on-harts-run-rd)

A lot of time when cyclists get killed by careless drivers, there are no witness around, and when the police record what happens, there will only be drivers’ story.
