POV Dsrl advice!

Hello my fellow community.
I have a quick question; I want to film a video, exclusively using point of view shots (camera attached to the head) , and I was wondering if any of you knew about a device or rig that I could buy to make this happen.

I know I can build one with a helmet and some other stuff, but I am seriously not the best one to do it and I rather spend some $ and get something that's already built. I'd be forever grateful with your responses. Cheers!

If you could let me some links to websites, or products, that would be amazing.

It's easier than you think to build something.

I made a setup for this with a bike helmet (in hindsight a skate style helmet would be better), a magic arm, a rod clamp, curved 15mm rod, some cable ties and a counterweight.

I had most of the parts just lying around but you could buy everything for about $50.

Camera-wise, if you use a mirrorless camera like Sony A6300 you can look through the EVF for framing.

I used the Sony 16mm f2.8 pancake lens with it. Was wide enough with looking distorted like a gopro setup would.
