    Action camera

    Whats the best action camera that can be attached to a helmet or on a headstrap, however it must be able to run for a couple of hours.
    Also looked at rifle cams but its got to fit on a Pulsar Duo thermal.
    Any ideas.
    Thanks

    DJI Action 4 has the best battery out of them all and doesn't overheat and shut down like go pros do also has the best stabilization and can do 4k120fps if slow mo is required in the edit no worries there

    This is my footage from a Action 3 and its bloody awesome but now have the 4 so better HDR 10 bit colour and bigger lens etc so footage on that is even better(colours low light etc)
    This is mine out hunting the output bitrate is alot lower just for file size etc but can be right up there, so you can see how good the rock steady stabilization is give its mounted on my cap its pretty smooth
    also has horizontal balance on so always level - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GtNiojH43E

    camera mount screwed to my hunting cap works fine handled dozens of falls and probably 500+km of hunting will post a pic tomorrow

    recharges from 0-80% in 18 min aswell so dont need extra batteries unless you dont have 20min to recharge it for another hour(minimum) of recording
    just plug in to battery bank while having a brake or durry

    also spent 30$ on 2x bike handle bar mount for the action 4's and have them mounted on my 308 bush rifle and .22 for spotlighting

    normal temps like 20-30c over 1hr but thats on 4k120 never record on 1920x180 but alot less information getting written to sd card so alot longer

    from dji
    "2.5 hours
    Ultra-long Battery Life,
    With over 2.5 hours of use, never miss a beat. When you finally do need to recharge, fast-charging has you covered. In just 18 minutes, charge up to 80%"

    I suppose it depends on the size of the SD card as well. I gather the bigger the card the more you fit on.
    Thanks.

    should mention can also run it of a small power bank as your recording so then it can record as long as the memory card has room, afew guys mount them on their boats and run a usb power supply to them and then use voice commands to record and stop record pretty sweet setup on a boat no bobbing around or any of that with their great stabilization so you dont get sea sick watching fishing footage on your 65" big screen

    Thanks for all the information, it looks like a DJI action 4 will fit the bill.
    I have a power bank so will attach it if we run over a couple of hours and run the largest SD card that is available.
