Personally I am not a fan of the barrel cam idea as it too often is pointed at the ground or the back of a bunker. The idea (hopefully) of a helmet cam is to see what the wearer saw.
The camera is designed to shoot a wide angle, hence the "fish eye" look. To get rid of the hopper and marker is virtually impossible. It is a learning process, so the angle of the camera is duly noted.
