POVERTY images? What's that?
Do you want stills or video? If it's stills, you need to use the shutter button, so why not just hold the camera? You can always use the neck strap? AF will be an issue; why not get a 70D with its flip out screen and DPAF? Or failing that, squat down?
If it's video you're after, DSLR's have a much narrower DoF than a GoPro. You'd need a very wide angle an exceptional video AF system to match a GoPro. I have a feeling a 70D with an 8-15 wouldn't keep up. Not to mention the sheer logistics of having that sort of weight strapped to you. It'd bounce around all over the place, winding you left right and centre unless you have a mount so tight that you can't breath.
Just get a GoPro.
