Is there anything I can do about a Contour? They come with lanyards and holes in the camera, but they have clips on them, so I have no idea how they couldn't fail, and the holes are so tiny that a few of my lanyards are already stripped down to the plastic inside of the cord.
Same here, and I fall a lot. Mine's lanyarded to the goggle clip though.
Yeah I've got the mount stuck on the helmet just above the goggle strap, and then half of the lanyard I open up and pass the goggle strap through it. I figure if the camera or mount comes off it'll pull my goggles down and I'll feel it or the camera flopping around on my cheek.
I've got one of the contour vented helmet mounts too, but I find it doesn't hold it nearly as steady as the regular mounts. Going to use the vented one for kayaking methinks...
Sick-pow: make sure u do a post when you loose your camera next year. In cold temps that sticker will fail.
Maybe certain helmets are more prone for stickability than others as the mount may not fully bond with certain plastic finishes . I bet money a good portion, over 50%, are applying the mount improperly, or some interaction with the plastic.
I have seen the flat mount stuck on curved surfaces more often than not.
POV footage is boring as hell . why even stick it on.
Agree, I've used mine to follow my GF and vise versa. Actually getting her comments on camera are probably the funniest part of it!
I'd like to find a collapseable poll mount one of these days. For the kayak in the summer I think I'm going to mount it to either the tip or tail of the kayak, and use the helmet mount for the occasional POV shot.
