They have an LCD screen option, Ben, or there is the wifi remote accessory for it too, IIRC, it allows you to view what the camera sees on a smart phone. Not sure how large a G12 is, but I'll guess the GoPro is most likely smaller too. Not sure how people could stand anything like it attached to a helmet though, seems too much like having an INVS (our night vision scope, for you civilian minded folks) on one of the k-pods (Kevlar helmet) with a rhino mount (what it sounds like, a mount that mounts from the "forehead" of the helmet). Saying it'd be awkward for that purpose, in car seems pretty good though.
