On-bike filming

Was just wondering whether any of you had ever attempted to video a ride and if so, where and how did you secure your video camera?

I’m concerned that the vibrations from the road will make the image too shaky to be a worthwhile idea and wondered whether there was anyway to get around this?

Hope that makes sense.

get ya pillion to hold it :D:D

i did alot of filming last year i have a little panasonic hand held and i bought a mount with a suction pad that screws into the bottom of the camera and i could mount on the tank,seat hump or even on the side of the bike.

once i stuck it to the outside of my visor and tied shoe lace around it and my neck.tested to high speed :slight_smile: modern cameras have anti shake so the footage is ok.i only have one video left see here

Some people stick a handheld digital camera with video capabilities in their helmet… don’t know how safe that is though…

Thats what I did. It doesn’t work very well, I guess its quite hard to keep a camera still whilst holding on for dear life.

Nice filtering:D
