The original VholdR wearable camcorder, a tiny solid state camcorder that easily mounts to helmets, bikes, dogs and whatever else to capture POV video, is a good little package. For Mac users, the output format of this camcorder can be a problem to manipulate without lots of tweaking. The ffmpeg utility makes using these files, in their original state, easy on the Mac.
