I've only used the spare parts from my $20 Amazon GoPro accessory kit so far to test out various positions. It's worked as testing mounts but nothing I'd ever use full time. I have a velcro wrist strap I wrapped around the left mirror strut, it was too far away from me and too much of the bike dash obscurred the view. I have a bicycle handlebar clamp I put on the inside of the left grip, that's the position I liked best so far but the clamp doesn't allow any swivel action so the angle was goofy. The clamp also got in the way of my left hand operating the switchgear so that wasn't ideal, but the camera position was pretty close to where I liked it best.Good looks, Mengy. Curious where you end up mounting it.
haha well when i get around to it I'll be putting my Hero2 on the bars - it will vibrate. Ought to be good for a laugh if nothing else.I just ordered a hero 7 black because it was on sale; I plan on putting my current hero 3+ on the bike, I just hope that it doesn't look terrible with the vibration. Will report back with results lol
Reporting in lads. I ended up putting it on the windscreen and it looks good! Mounting it on the mirror however is a different story lolI got a really good angle, but alot of vibration on the Hero3+ or maybe it was just the shite roads here. I'll see what I can do to stabilize it in post. On my next video you can see the results for yourselves and maybe save some money
My wife bought me a Hero 5 Session for my helmet years back. I use it at my 2nd now and have it mounted looking back at me. It works great especially with the available mounts from GoPro.Hello all, I run a GoPro Hero 8 Black on my helmet but I'm considering buying 2nd camera to mount to the handlebars looking back at me. I see many other motovloggers doing this two-camera setup today and I have to admit I like it a lot.
My suspicion is I don't need anything as fancy as a Hero 8 for this. I see a lot of people running a Hero 5 Session on the bars and I'm leaning towards this myself. I can get a renewed one on Amazon for $130 which isn't too bad IMHO.
Any suggestions for an affordable fixed handlebar camera?
Yep my windshield helps a TON with wind noise reduction . Every now and then I'll stand on the pegs to stretch my legs while filming and there is always much more wind noise when I get the camera above the windshield.You guys with faired and windscreen bikes are at a big advantage when it comes to mounting options for cameras AND reduced wind noise to be picked up.
(moto mengy that's clear in your videos for example)
