CAMERA MOUNT

Thru the years I have tried various ways to take video as I ride. I have mounted my camera on my trike a couple of different times but never liked the results. One thing I object to is the camera picking up road noise thru the mount I had for it. I have had the camera helmet mounted but didn’t care for that at all even though there was probably the least jarring of the camera that way. Most of the time I have just held the camera in my hand. I really don’t like doing that however. Recently I have been trying out a mount I made using the mount for a headlight. I had to modify the headlight mount in order to mount the camera. Much to my surprise it doesn’t transfer much road noise into the camera.

Where I live and ride the road and trail surfaces are fairly rough so getting jarred around is a problem I have to deal with when it comes to taking video. Much to my surprise the jarring around using this camera mount is not as bad as I expected it would be. Never the less it is still present so I am considering doing some experimentation to see if I can improve upon this.

Also I would like to be able to quickly and easily remove the camera to hand hold it should I come across something I want to catch on video which requires re-aiming the camera or even moving it following the subject matter. Also I want to be able to easily remove the camera (only) and take it with me if I should stop for lunch or shopping while out riding.

Many of us like to video tape our rides and we do so for various reasons. How do you go about it? Please tell us by leaving a comment.

  1. Steve, I have taken a short video of a quick release camera mount that I use and I’m wondering how to show you. Amazon has various camera quick connectors brands you can choose from. Mine is an Andoer model with a screw tightener. Others have quick release levers. I hope this helps. Not sure how to get in touch with you otherwise except seeing you on the Greenway. But that will have to wait until May as we are in our winter residence in AZ until then. Enjoy the ride and again, thanks for the great blog!
