I searched a little and could not come with anything good... topic says it all ! I'm looking for mounthing pros/cons. What types of cameras guys are using? I have a decentt Sony and I was thinking of some sort of roll bar install.
The small Sony Camcorder on a rollbar setup has worked for many. But any speed over 35mph will pick up so much wind sound. I would rather just never upload or view a video like that with sound. It's just annoying.
You can purchase small microphones and route them to some spot inside the car with less wind.
The ball head is very common in photography. If I remember correctly this is the micro ball head. They also have a mini. If you can't find bogan, look for manfrotto, I think they bought bogan. Or just go to a pro photo shop.
About the mount. It s a strip of soft steel about 3/4 inch. I don't remember the thickness. You just cut it to size, de-burr it, bend a 90 on one end, drill it and then coat it with black rubberizer stuff. You could also just paint it. To cut down on vibration I've also included a barely visible piece of rubber which I cut from a flat bottle opener pad. You then just need a short fastner that screws into the ball head and a lock washer. Hope this helps. bob
I use the IO Port mount in my race car. It's the same one that Roger (Turkey Master) has a link to. It's a very solid and flexible mounting system. Can hold a camera up to a couple of pounds. Bob Lennon's looks OK too but may not space a larger camera far enough from the roll bar.
