A good helmet camera can be relatively inexpensive, and provide you with many hours of fantastic, high-quality footage. 

There are a few things to think about when picking a good helmet camera, while many of the best cameras for cyclists will also double up as a great helmet cam there are a few differences to look out for. The most important factor is of course, video quality, the higher the resolution (for example being able to shoot in 5.7K) the better and more professional your video will look.
