Looks like its working pretty good… more stable than I expected… and with it being PVC, adding some elbows or something to make it higher or lower wouldn’t be that hard. (I personally would like to see it a bit higher…)
Just watch going off largish drops… would hate to bang the camera as you dropped.
I’m not too sure that small or even big drops would “read” that well. What does seem to look decent is just riding, so we’ll see how that works at first. I just finished padding the camera, so hopefully in the event of a backward dismount/fall there won’t be damage. Wish me luck and I’ll post results later today! (M)Uni-Geezer out!
The last attempt was pretty stable. Looks good, I can’t wait to see your muni recording. The second attempt with the bouncing boom, made you look like you were getting air time. It reminded me of the mean Miss Gulch riding her bicycle on the Wizard of Oz. I could practically hear the haunting music.
I was just going to post the same babble as 'bibble.
I’m excited to see some intense in-your-face muni footage… although I think the wide-angle lens may detract from the magnitude of the action… the bumps and drops don’t look as severe through that lens. It’s a great POV nonetheless and I’m really curious to see some footage of steep and/or technical single-track riding from that angle.
Now if you’ve got some money to blow, just install a couple of these helmet cams on a mount like that, each with a different lens and angle. Now you’ve got two takes of your ride in one go. Scale up as technology and budget permits.
