killer GoPro… Michael Schumacher’s injuries caused by a camera?

goproApparently there are news going around that Michael Schumacher sustained were due to the GoPro camera he was wearing… Allegedly the mount has done the damage…

Not saying that this is not possible or untrue… but it is a little bit like blaming a rock that he hit…  Come on people… The main cause for the injuries was the fact that he hit a rock at a high speed!

I’m not sure how much less damage would have occurred if he did not have the GoPro on…  but  we should stop blaming the company for the unfortunate way he hit his head…

Saying all that… if he had a Drift or Contour… they are mounted on the side of a head… much less likely to hit something full force on the side of your head… but in the same time when someone gets hurt wearing a Drift the same sh*t debate will be going on…

img-thingHow about we say that the biggest problem with go-pro format is the way it looks when you wear it not the safety…

If we all start to panic now about the mounts soon they will weight more then a camera… for safety reasons… screw that…

So relax and understand that the biggest risk is what you are doing not a fact that you are wearing a GoPro…. in the end of the day if that parachute does not open…. the least of your worries will be the mount…
