That's exactly what Nick Woodman did with the GoPro
In reply to PixelMover, Nov 12, 2013

What the OP is talking about, designing and building your own camera to meet your requirements and specifications, is exactly what Nick Woodman did with the GoPro action camera.  Now he's on the Forbes List as one of America's top billionaires.

He's a surfer/entrepreneur living in California who saw a need for wearable camera. So he designed and built one. Fast forward 10 years later and GoPro is the number one selling action camera in the world, used by everyone from competitive athletes, news agencies and cinematographers to marine biologists.

60 Minutes had an excellent profile on Woodman and his GoPro camera this past Sunday. Inspiring success story, and definitely worth watching. Good stuff.
