    Im looking at producing hd videos of dancers doing instructional videos - i would like a pov (point of view) shot of their feet.

    How could i go about this?

    they perform facing away from cam (repeat the dance twice - 1 front on, second rear) - so shot of the back of their legs

    go very close to them holding cam under their chin and track their movement - risk of hitting them with cam, maybe shaky shots

    Use basic Jib - dangle this over the performers head,

    Camera on their head, again maybe shaky, low quality

    I would say GoProHD but that depends on your lighting. I just got mine and tested it at a gig (classic rock band) for ****** and giggles.
    Audio was impressive even enclosed in the water-proof case.
    Try www.gopro.com!

    look good,

    can you get an extension bar for the helmet, so it sticks out and can you point the cam down (so -90degrees)

    They sell a mount for a tripod.
    You'd have to retro-fit your own.
    Judging from others out there in the field, its common to make your own parts that work :)
    Its a widely used camera in extreme sports.
