This year, all the action at the 2014 Tour de France Yorkshire leg will be captured by a rather unusual sort of cameramen—or camera-animals. For the event, Sony recruited five sheep from Harrogate's Harewell Hall Farm to serve as "sheepcams" outfitted with the Sony HD AS100VR ActionCam on a modified dog harness. Even though you might expect that the footage might be a little wobbly, the camera is equipped with Advance SteadyShot stabilization that results in blur-free captures. As well, the splash-proof cameras will work rain or shine and come with a waterproof case if there happens to be a torrential downpour.
Farmer Ian Hammond of the Harewell Hall Farm will be able to control the five sheepcams remotely through a live view remote, so there's really no way that the sheep won't give you a good look at the race.
