Looking for Option to mount Camera to Mask

Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for mounting a video camera (In this case, the RAP4 Landwarrior) to a mask. While the barrel mount is ok, I only tend to bring my marker up when shooting, which gives me lot's of footage of grass, my shoes and more grass.

Thanks

Many users seem to have taped or sewn their cameras to their goggle straps. The trick about that is, you have to have the mask on when you center the camera on the strap, otherwise you're liable to turn the camera funny when you put the mask on, by stretching the strap.

Unfortunately goggle cams don't normally turn out very good footage unless you spend a lot of time getting the aim right - you don't normally look the same way you're shooting and often when shooting your face is pointing more to the right than your gun (assuming you're right handed).

I'd personally just go for the barrel mount anyways and try to keep my gun up - it's good technique anyways.

very true, i did see videos from one guy who mounted his camera on the top of his helmet. He always got good video, but it doesn't give the same vibe to the watcher as a side of the helmet mount would. (IMHO)

I've seen people with the barrel mounted cams and cameras that are held to the top of the full head JT elite mask with zip ties and what not. Footage from both is usually pretty good.

Oregon Scientific makes a great camera for goggles or marker use. It comes with a variety of mounting options. I used to own one but never used it so I got rid of it. Impact resistant & water proof up to 10 feet.

i have the oregon scientific camera. Havnt tried it on my masks yet, only on barrel.

For mounting, most masks have vent holes on the ear peices, which allow it to easily be zip tied to the side, without even coming in contact with the strap.

Use this goggle strap mount with the Universal mount to the left of it. Rock solid mounting system.

I made this short video as a trial run with my POV.1 , which is an awesome awesome camera.

Watch it in high quality though, Youtube butchers it otherwise. Overall the camera has amazing video quality, amazing sound, its small, light, and has an amazing "capture the past" memory option.

I was going to go for the miners mount like a light on top but im not sure how to do that. I like the rail idea but I have soft ears on my events. Ill try it out.. thanks!
