Go Pro is a digital camera which captures excellent footage. If you've ever watched the X Games you've seen the Go Pro in action. You cannot mount a DSLR to a helmet and walk around expecting to get a steady shot. If you ever accomplish such a feat, you will for sure make the cover of every photography magazine in the world overnight. The Go Pro is an action camera specifically engineered and designed with a helmet mount purposely built to capture POV footage in hostile environments (i.e. violent shaking, high speeds, dust, wind, rain, etc.) I've seen it survive a World Rally Championship, roll over crash at over 130mph, down the side of a mountain in Cypress. This is the camera which is used by professional action sports production companies around the world and broadcast thousands of times every day. The quality is rock solid. The quality of your footage depends on you. There is no camera that will magically make you achieve your desired result. If you want a DSLR for POV shooting in your described scenario, you will need a steady cam rig and a camera op to follow you around.
