    Camera and mount for peak cap

    I am after a camera and mount for ballcap for hunting, pistol 3/multigun shooting.

    I have a sport cam that is similar to a gopro but it has shit battery life (has gotten worse after little use) and is a bit awkward but usable on my hat.

    Any others out there I should look at.
    I notice a few at ipsc matches or fellas getting around with the mounts on their hats.

    I bought one about the size of a small torch a month ago but it is 720p. Easy to use but really shit picture quality.
    Gave it to my son and I think I am in his good books for a while.

    Preferably weather proof with good runtime and true HD quality.
    Don't want to spend a fortune.

    These seem to be the go but they do not ship to Nz and I can't find anyone selling them here unless I am mistaken.

    Shoudn't be too hard to make a mount that bolts through the cap brim for any action cam. Something like this?

    I have seen that today while browsing thanks mate.
    In fact the one I have now was a bit of a selfy rig. It is just a bit too noticeable when using it and running around.

    I want something lighter with good battery life. The techyon looks the business.

    Unless anyone knows of a better turnkey setup?

    Thanks Pete. They are all pretty much the same as what I have.
    There is one there that looks alright.
    If I can sort shipping I would like to go with the techyon as it is designed for Ipsc etc.

    It will turn off after 2 mins which also suits someone as forgetful as me.
    More than I wanted to spend but looking to be the most suited camera I have seen so far.
