Yeah, gopros are pretty good.

This is the same video but different soundtrack. The first one is country music and the second one is rock/metal. Kinda different just for kicks and giggles. Everything was shot with a GoPro, It was the refs that had the camera. Definitely a different viewpoint!

I dont know about GoPros but for Contours you can get double the FPS with 720 than with 1080 which makes for better slow-mo footage. I always shoot with 720.

Just curious who ever bought the HD Helmet Hero what piece do you use to put on your barrel? Or did you have to buy the 'Handelbar Seat Post' mount separately?

I got the motor sports package now don't take any of what I say as concrete lol but I have read up on them and I got the handlebar mount for the barrel as that's what others said they used. And r5 is 1080p. Also 32GB is much more than the battery will last from what ive read as well even so im still going for a 32gb I bought an extra battery and just in case. You also can leave it plugged in and still record so it may come in handy.

EDIT: Forced to get the 16 gb lol tight on money.

If you don't to shell out the 20 for a gopro handle bar mount. I made my own out of a bike light. The light only cost me about 6-10 bucks.
here's some picks of it.

use mode R2 for regular footage in sunlight.
use mode R3 for high quality slow-mo in sunlight.

Brilliant - I was just debating with this, and don't need anything else. I like the helmet view, but not the profile it makes at the top of the head. Barrel cam is next best (if not better.)


- I ended up using a hose clamp and a 1/4"-20tpi screw through the center. Took a lot to pad it out / tape it up to attach and protect the barrel, but it's holding steady now.

GoPro - 720p x 60fps

This is for a GoPro.
Using the tripod mount you can pretty much attach it to anything that you can put a 1/4" hole in. The threads on the tripod mount are 1/4 x 20 and the screws are available at any hardware store. You will probably need some washers too to keep it from pulling through the plastic.
