Bike touring and camcorder
« on: November 04, 2010, 02:43:42 PM »
I was trying to find a way to attach a camcorder to a handlebar. Does anyone have some experience with that? Perhaps a mounting system? Can anyone recommend a particular camcorder. I'm looking for something water resistant if not waterproof, shock proof with some anti-shake features and decent quality. If anyone found a good system that gives some decent videos I would be happy to hear about it.

I use the CountourHD camera.  1080dpi-wide angle lens.  It has a handy handlebar mount that works really well.  As far as a full sized video camera.  Keep looking, there has to be some good products out there somewhere.  I really like my little POV camera...no focus, or hassles.  After the rides, I just edit together the clips that I most enjoy and ala-kazam....it's done.  Good luck.

Austin, the Contour looks exactly like what I am looking for! I also read some good reviews about the gopro wide angle, did you have any chance to play with that one? Peter thx for the post, very inspirational!!!
