    (If I need to become an official vendor to offer these, let me know and I will. I want to make sure I follow the rules)

    I am an official dealer for these cameras but do not really do it to make money. I did it to get these cameras in the hands of my fellow service members. So..might as well get them in your hands too.

    Take a look at the products. These things are pretty rugged and are built to military specification. In fact, the original intent was built for the military and they found a civilian market. These things are solid!

    They are used for a lot of different applications...mostly adventure sports. I think they would be awesome for our trucks. In fact, I plan on having tabs mounted on my bar (when I get it) to attach the camera.

    You can see a TON of video's on youtube. Just search VIO or POV 1.

    Here are some videos I have shot with mine. They have one of my videos on their site as advertisement.

    Pricing:

    POV 1.5 Moto kit (retail $650.00) TW price: $560.00+ shipping

    POV 1.5 (retail $600.00) TW price: $510.00+ shipping

    There are some accessories but the camera (especially the moto kit) comes pretty well equipped. If there are some accessories you would be interested, list them and I get pricing. The camera comes with a 110 degree FOV (field of view) camera head. Better for wide angle. If you want something with a narrow FOV, the 70 degree head is a better fit.

    As I stated, my intent was not to do this as a business but make them affordable to others in the military. As such, I am not set up to take credit cards, I DO accept via paypal.

    If there is some interest, getting 10 kits at a time is the best way to go.

    Let me know what you all think.

    I'd be interested, I do alot of big mountain skiing comps, and I've had other helmet cams but the POV is the cat's meow, the same one all the boys at TGR use
