DIY Bicycle Camera Mount
Car mounting a digital video camera is proving to be a tricky task from the perspective of getting flexibility in mounting and something sturdy enough to not lose the camera as the car accelerates. Mounting a digital camera or DV cam on your bicycle looks like an easier proposition. Camera Hacker offers a tutorial on converting the mounting bracket from a bicycle light into a handle bar mounted tripod for use in filming cycling excursions. No word on how well it absorbs the shock of road vibrations, but the mount looks sturdy enough for most biking activities. If you want to grab stills on your weekend ride or attempt to film trail riding footage, this tutorial is a good place to start in building your own bicycle camera mount.
