So I'm looking at getting one of the less expensive video cameras - one of the 2 listed above. What I'm most interested in is how to mount them. I'd like to have one sitting under the screen if possible, facing forward and not showing any info from the gauges (or adjustable to show it). I'd also consider a fork mount if that's realistic, but I'd like to keep it away from any water. Any suggestions would be appreciated, especially what mounts to get.
I'm not interested in super high quality because it's a waste of money in my opinion if you're not also willing to spend the money on editing software (although I suppose there are free versions), but more importantly, the huge amount of time and effort it takes to edit a good vid. The cam is just to record some trips of nice places I visit, learn a little about how I ride and for safety in the event of need of a recording.
Yeah, I've looked at a few, thanks. Now that I think about it, it'd be near impossible to get a suction cup to stick to the screen unless I was able to create a flat area by adding something else, which defeats the purpose. Now thinking maybe I can clip something on to the end of the screen, then hang the camera from that. Otherwise it'll need to be something with a fuel cap attachment.
So I bought the Contour Roam in the end as I got it for a lot less. I'm not Steven Spielberg so he FPS won't make much difference and I don't have the time to edit video. I was wondering if anyone had managed to attach it to the bolt that the screen is attached to the front fairing (left side to avoid res) with using a piece of aluminum or something. I guess this might result in a lot of vibration. I'd like to have the protection of the screen, but an unobstructed view. If not, can a small suction cup mount be stuck to the bottom of the screen?
If neither of these options is a go, I'll use a gas cap mount like the one .bolink linked to in another thread.
