How to mount a gopro camera

Postby Zenner » Sat Feb 19, 2011 3:56 pm

I just got my gopro hero camera. And i would love to capture some great footage but i don't know how/ where to mount the cam to get the best footage.

Any ideas?

So far there are different board mounts and line mounts on this thread.

If you go for the suction cup on the board, then tape it too so you avoid the stuff sliding off the deck.

Have fun

Here's an interesting 360 mount idea. Might be hard to keep the camera out of your kite lines. :lol:


and here's a Gopro 360 timelapse mount vid. The camera is set to take a photo 1 every 2 sec and is mounted to a modified egg timer. Could be an interesting way to get some background scenes??

uhh....two questions:

1. how did the MTBer get those shots. I'd love to see a picture of the rig he used to get those.

2. I'd settle for just learning how to embed video directly to this forum instead of having to post a like. How is that done?

Thanks,
Droffats
