How about this for a camera mount?

Anybody any experience with these kinds of mounts? Vibration when mounted to the tank should be minimal right? I reckon I might get this on my lid too…

I’ve a Canon S95 and 450d, so don’t want to spend money on a Gopro or Contour etc, these both do the job better…

Hi davori, no experience with this type of mount myself, vibration will be more on a tank mount than a lid mount as your body acts like another shock absorber for the camera.

I’d say you’d probably get a sore neck after a while if you tried to mount this on your lid with a 450d :wink: it’d be quite a weight, not sure how the suction cups would perform on a lid either. My lid mount is adhesive not suction - but then my camera only weighs 150 grams.

Also, obviously it would be fair weather only :slight_smile:

Good luck!

I only really need it for my euro trip this summer, 450 would be the tank option with the light S95 going on the lid. I imagine I’d look like an even bigger weirdo with a big old DSLR hanging off the top of my head :slight_smile:

Do you get more wind noise when you’ve your contour on? Buffeting?

I’ve got the single suction cup version cost about £10 stays on my 'bird at around 90mph just do ALL the screws up really tight and you dont get too much vibration, I stuck mine on the side of the fairing was fine :slight_smile:

oh and I used a fuji finepix 1000 camera

Just bought this:

If this works as well as I think it will, I think I’m sorted. Loads of mounting options (duct tape, cable ties, gps cradle etc etc). Will do a review once I’ve got it…
