Re: Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

Swivel mount isn't a bad option either. @fleetshore751 you can turn the camera to see that it is recording and then swivel it into position facing forward. Personally, I think the fiber optic idea that Fish demonstrated in his video is a cool idea, but the swivel mount (which Fish also recommended) is probably the simplest solution.

Re: Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

The actual gopro swival mount is STIFF, to turn it will angle  not much but rotate.. offer more  ride angles.   one can get other types of swivals and extensions. the only other alternative is t he phoeen and App that will  give a view  for live feed. if visual is really necessary and be safer then turning and always checking the camera.

Re: Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

I think the swivel mount will move on me. We are hitting branches and the helmets take some knocks. We usualy set the camera angles at the start of the day and screw them down super tight so they dont move. 

Im trying to keep everything simple and low profile as everything gets a lot of abuse on the bikes. Current settup tucks in nicely under the visor.

Im loving the fibre optic idea though.

The remote is another great option but i cant belive how huge they are. 

It would be great if the new models came out with 2 power buttons or selectable leds.

Thanks for all of the ideas.
