HelmetCamera.com Setup

New experiment...

Watch the video first and see if you can guess where the camera is mounted.
MPG Video (7.3megs)

Then look at the pics to see it.

Pic 2


Previous mounting locations:

Steering Nut

Helmet

Under Headlight

That is wild! I do like being able to see the spedo and tach though. On a scale of 1 to 10 how do you rate the helmet cam?

I love the camera. Definately a 10 IMO.

I think I like the under the headlight angle the best, but there are clearance issues with hard riding.

Didn't drill anything... Just temporarily removed the low-beam bulb... I can switch the whole thing out in like 5 minutes.

Interesting idea; but the head light camera view reminds my of the view from inside those old Astro minivans What about mounting the camera on one of the frame sliders. That may give a pretty good perspective of lean angles.

Yeah, I've tried it on the sides, but I like the "middle" angle better, so it's more symmetrical.
