The Dad cam has been making quite a name for itself in the action sports world for a while now. Something about the nostalgic feeling it creates means that it can hold it’s own in a world typically dominated 4K and RED cameras.
On that note, two heavy hitters of the MTB Dad cam world (an ‘invented today’ world) released videos for us to enjoy. 50to01 took us behind the scenes at the Gully and the Vanzacs allowed us to join them in the promised land for some DH action. Both contain some vintage use of the dad cam, utilising the zoom to end all zooms whilst catching the vibe of each ride.
If you’re not a fan of the Dad cam, luckily for you Alex Rankin and 50to01 released this look at Sam Hockenhall A.K.A Dave. Making the less than obvious switch from semi pro football to MTB, it’s evident that he’s got the skills with Ratboy saying he could become one of the best.
