Question to all comers… Has anyone attempted to mount an iphone to a helmet for filming purposes? Most of the ideas on the net require structural damage to the helmet or an inability to get to the record button. I want to use the iphone because it is heaps lighter than strapping a sony handicam to your scalp whilst manoeuvring traffic.
Funnily enough I have already dropped the iphone4 into the front spokes whilst on a ride to ‘the Gong’ in an attempted revival of spokey dokey. The iPhone lives to fight another day. Was looking at cheaper options than the GoPro range. The only other item I have come across is this one…Buy Muvi Micro Camcorder FILM YOUR RIDE in VIC - BikeExchange.
the gopro comes with a helmet mount. it’s definitely noticable, but not too bad, and even an iphone attached to your head will be noticable.
i really wouldn’t feel comfortable with an iphone attached to my helmet; it would get whacked by low branches, if you fell off it would get destroyed, your phone would have a dead battery by the time you got to work, if you forgot about it and put your helmet on the ground it could break, and you will get some funny looks riding around with a phone strapped to your helmet.
