Helmet cam set ups seem easy to accomplish with a standard motorcycle helmet- mount on side, top or chin guard.

My Shoei GT-Air is a different matter. Can't mount on top as that's where the face shield swings to.

Can't do a chinguard mount if a microphone is being used (as I want to do) as wiring would be an issue when the front is flipped.

Seems to pretty much leave only the side of the helmet - but due to mechanism for flipping up front of helmet the camera would face out at about 45 degree rather than to the front.

Surely others here have this type of helmet, and if so I'd love to hear your solutions please.

As far as cameras go I have a GoPro Hero 2 (yeah I know) and a Sony camera (can't recall name at the moment, but this one has a better profile for a sidemount as far as streamlining goes.

I'm not looking to do any YouTube vlogging as such at the moment. Mostly just as a dashcam / recording wankers on phones thing.

Cheers all :)

I know people who have a gopro on the front of the flip-front helmet.
Wiring is a bit more tricky, but can be done. Or disconnect the mic when not vlogging.

Drift could help as well with the side helmet problem, due to their rotating lens.

have a look through some of the threads on here, a little while ago someone posted their helmet setup with an arm from the side putting the camera at the front! :)

I've looked through the threads and couldn't find any re camera setup on a flip front - not to say there aren't some just that I couldn't find them :)

Best perspective is all very well, but it has to be workable :)

Although this is for an openface helmet, you might be able to do similar with a flip lid:

I have a Torc T27B modular helmet for my setup with a gopro 7silver mounted on the chin bar. I use a tascam DR-05x to record audio. The wire for the mic runs from the recorder in my pocket, inside my jacket, up to my helmet. The wire is held in place under the cheek pad but the mic sits on the front of the cheek pad protruding between the shell and cheek pad. I learned the hard way to adjust the recording settings in the tascam though. First outting it sounded like I was simultaneously chewing on the mic and screaming LoL. Audio has to be synced in post with the video.
