Re: GoPro mounting positions
To those of you that have a GoPro - I've just bought myself a used HD Hero 2 - been wanting one for ages! Planning on using it when I go to the Isle of Man TT in the next couple of weeks
I was just wondering if you had any tried and tested mounting positions? I've got it mounted on the side of my helmet atm using one of the curved mounts, I like the position and it seems to get quite good footage.
I'm thinking of filming me 'conquering' the mountain from a mixture of positions -
Suction cup on tank behind or in front of filler cap
Flat adhesive mount on the swingarm
Helmet mount - right side
What do you think - any others you can suggest or that work particularly well on the blade?
My preference is always to have the instruments and steering in the shot so you can learn something from the video afterwards. A very big advantage to having the camera fixed to the bike is that you can more accurately see the road for lines, apexes, braking points and such things so you can compare from lap to lap.
Really not a fan of helmet cam.
