Video: ParaShoot

Use:  “Always-on” video recording for covering news events and capturing unexpected moments

ParaShoot is a small, HD camera that hangs from the user’s neck and can be set to record video automatically and share wirelessly.  The 720p camera can record video while reporters are covering an event, picking up b-roll footage or capturing an unexpected moment if the reporter’s main camera is not currently rolling.  (Storage is limited to about an hour’s worth of video, but it does include an internal SD memory slot).  ParaShoot also offers an app that can be used to control the camera, including shooting interval and sharing.

(Another alternative, of course,  is Google Glass which will also allow you to shoot video on the fly without having to whip out and set up you mobile camera.)

The company is raising money through Kickstarter (they need to raise $260,000 by July 23) and will reserve a device for $129 to early backers.
