I am not an out going person and I try not to draw attention to myself in public. So strapping a GoPro camera to my head with the Head Mount is totally out of character for me.
To get some really awesome footage, it is sometimes necessary! And yes I feel like a nincompoop when I'm wearing it.
Last year I swam across Keuka Lake in a fund raising event. It's not a race! It's just a .67 mile “fun swim”. I wore my GoPro throughout the whole event, in and out of the water – people gave me some very awkward looks.

To add to my humiliation, I had to wear my long, thick hair in braided piggy tails because it wouldn't all stuff into my pink swim cap.
So I was going to look like a nincompoop whether I had a camera on my head or not.
I also wore the GoPro several times on my family's Disney Cruise vacation in April 2014. To take a camera on the Aqua Duck Water Coaster, it has to be secured. This is the perfect opportunity to use the head mount. I wore it facing front, then rode again facing behind me where my husband was sitting. We even saw another guy with a GoPro on his head (so I'm not the only nincompoop out there!).
And a little less humiliating is wearing the GoPro on the headstrap mount inside… carving pumpkins.
