A cracking use of new technology from This is Plymouth [reported by Press Gazette](http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/article/271006/online_video_headcam_plymouth_evening_herald)

The Plymouth Evening Herald’s web site today published video recorded using a state-of-the art camera strapped to a reporter’s head, in what could be a trial run for solo war reporting from Afghanistan.

Maritime and defence correspondent Tristan Nichols had a small (what we used to call lipstick) camera attached to his head feeding a portable media recorder, whilst he followed Plymouth squaddies to Sierra Leone.

The result – some brilliant first hand footage, including an ambush on a patrol.
