Two questions guys :)

Wheres the best place to mount a action cam to achieve a bump/blur free recording as possible whilst riding a MTB?


And also how best to avoid wind noise whilst riding?



Cheers :wink:

Not sure if you should mount it on the bike or on your chest :? I'd have thought mounting it on the rider would smooth some of the bumps :?
As to wind noise.Avoid heinz :wink:

Yeah to be honest I thought ON the bike would be the worst place to mount it.
I was wondering if off/remote cam mic with a furry/foam thing over it would work best.

Much better going down it than up :lol:

It's quicker than it looks too, but not up hill, after cake...

Without wanting to hijack a thread, has anyone bought a decent action cam, and if so how much, where, what do I look for?

Cheers
