Ski Cams

OK, hoping for help, this is always a great place for assistance.

Having to do a presentation at work to basically reapply for my own job and have been given the following...

The scenario:
The business owner of a local ski school is embarking on a series of new initiatives to drive improvements to attract new & bring improvements for his existing customers, therefore increasing turnover and profits.
As part of this drive he has a need for camera/video capture capability, thereby allowing customers to capture footage of their experiences when executing their runs and manoeuvres. In this way they can build a bespoke diary of their activities and use the data to track progress & suggest improvements.
As an avid & experienced skier & close friend of the owner, he has approached you offering the opportunity to look at what products are available in the market with a view to making a recommendation for which product he should look to buy in support of his business growth ambitions. You should cover aspects such as relative pros/cons, review of features, value for money, ruggedness & reliability etc.


Any help, pointers, advice etc all gratefully recieved.
I like to think I am already being a bit clever by seeking advice from others

if you're looking for products:
There are drones available that automatically follow you down the slope.
obviously there are gopro's etc with loads of options for mounting.
loads of cheaper alternatives to gopro's which do a similar job

probably worth looking at the cost of tuition, in UK most of tuition is done by very low paid employees, may be better value to just have the instructors offering feedback.

For the sort of video quality you will be looking for, then in terms of mountable cameras you really should be looking at the GoPro HERO4 Black.

Wasnt it a GoPro helmet cam that almost killed Michael Schumacher? The mount for the camera punched through his helmet and into his skull.

I'll stick to holding out my Iphone in front of me on the black runs.

most places you go the ski lift cards can determine how far you went what runs you did etc, i currently have a device fitted to my goggles made by nasa, has a little tv screen in, tells me how fast im going, answer your phone through it and many more things. i also currently have the hero hd go pro, is very good, can attach to the skis, helmet, poles, selfie stick, also a harness for back or chest

You are of course correct but it's a trick question, nobody isnt going to say GOPRO surely?

Does the note that it is yer man's 'existing' customers mean you could can move away from the chain mail, titanium, indestructible huge efforts on the market, and look at slicker, snazzier ones as I would assume existing customers are able to ski so won't be face planting every 2 minutes. The nod to honing their technique kind of hints at that as well.

Or am I reading too much into things?

Also, the classic videocamera should really be considered. Having a gopro attached to your helmet/pole will do little to capture issues with technique as it doesn't really show body position/what yer legs are doing too well.

Having an instructor with a camera is probably the best way to highlight where improvements are needed.

Who wants to watch a load of snow whizzing past and some "hilarious" face plant anyway.

Fun for about 15 seconds then a total waste of time.

Yes, all a bit vague as it is some BS presentation, in reality, if he was my mate I would be advising him to seek the help of someone who knows, I am an IT consultant, ask me about IT and I would be happy to help.
Have to say though you are all helping me to see a number of different angles to this which is fantastic.

Surely there's an IT consultant angle on this (assuming it's a sales' type task).

Maybe a snazzy tracker type system and analytic based on posture etc. see Prozone type thing in football.
