Where to wear a camera?

I recently purchased a camera and for those of you that fish with them, where do you wear them? I currently have a headband accessory to strap the camera to but I see they also make a band that goes around the chest area. Has anyone tried both to see which captures the best footage? 

Thank you.

Thanks for the feedback. I purchased the camera to record my trout fishing trips and a tripod or stand isn't ideal when trekking up river. I'm starting to think on the chest may be the best spot compared to being worn on my hat where the bill could get away or I could be moving my head too much.

Chest cams make horrible videos. The extreme wide angle lens was designed for selfies, not for pointing off toward the distance. The only thing chest mounting does is give you hours of a hand cranking a reel. Not fun to watch.

Neither one is ideal.  If you are able to mount it somewhere on your boat or, like E-Tec1 says, use a pedestal, it is much more stable.

I have mine mounted on a pedestal in the back of the boat and it has voice activated shows everything I want to see

Going solely based on what I've seen from watching youtube fishing videos, I prefer when they have the chest strap on. When they have it on their head I feel like it jumps around too much, you move your head more than you think.  Just my 2 cents.
