my custom helmet camera

Recommended Posts

materials required 1) paper towel/some non glues paper/cloth. 2)duct tape. 3)one cheap camera phone. 4) any type of shim you can use.

iv always wanted a helmet camera, to show people the riding spots and such, well one day a while ago, i wrapped the cone on my helmet, and the cell phone with paper towel, then wrapped the paper towel in the duct tape, taped the phone to the cone on the helmet, shimmed it so it would fit right, then played with the phone for a half hour and got it to take like a 15 min long video, i have no way to get the video off the phone, but it was my moms old phone that was out of service. aannnddddd walla, you have a whir free, 2 in 1, 1 pound video/recorder on the cone of your helmet, and you don't have to worrie about a tree taking it off......unless you get a branch to the face......witch isn't fun eather

ha ha. That is pretty ghetto. To bad you can't get the video off that phone. You don't have a lot of free time do you?

yes i have taped a digital cam(that takes videos also) on the fender.......the fender gets to mudding when i ride, and it bounces around to much....on the helmet......mostly out of the mud..and it takes it from your view

Haha yeah the videos look awesome and since its an actual camcorder they're really clear. When I first started using it I thought my fender was going to snap in half because the damn thing weighs so much.:thumbsup:
