    Anti Vibration on an Action Cam

    Has anyone found a viable solution to stopping Massive vibration when mounting an action camera on thier Bike? I have an SJ4000 (Brilliant Cam for the money) its mounted on the front fairing of the bike, but on the backroads and some main ones where ther tar grade is bad I get massive vibrations. I now mounting it one the helmet gets rid of that, but I'm really looking at having it mounted on the front as it provides a better overall view and feel.

    It's like a GoPro Hero type so same type of twisty mounts, I will try and figure out how to upload a vid I did.

    Any advice welcomed.

    I mount mine on the handlebars. Vibration is acceptable: to me.

    Some people like chest mounts.

    YouTube Vid hope this works, the road surface is rubbish, but still loads of standard vibration. Ignore the date etc I just hadnt set the camera.

    Fairing is a bad place to mount. You're always going to have vibration unless you get one of those gyro do hickeys (so awesome), but the fairing is probably one of the worst. I have a RAM mount ball on one of the bolts of my handlebars, and then a RAM extension to my camera. I had a 4" one, but I didn't like where camera was and found a 2" one, and there much less vibration on the 2" vs the 4". I'll try to get pix posted up later today.

    Not the best picture because of dark background, but it's all I have here with me at work right now. The sphere on top is my camera. A GoPro mounts in the same way, and I'm sure your camera could too.

    I ordered a Handle Clamp Base ball from here:
    Motorcycle Bases | RAM Mounts

    That just replaces one handlebar bolt with a new bolt and a ball.

    Then I ordered one of these to attach to it:

    And finally ordered one of these for my GoPro (also works with camera pictured).
    http://www.amazon.com/Ram-Mount-1-In...ords=gopro+ram

    And ended up with this:

    I like a helmet mounted shot. It's much more dynamic and your neck makes a good stabilizer.

    I do love ram mounts, though. There are so many different configurations you can build, and depending on how you set it up, the rubber takes a lot of the vibration out. If you set it up poorly or try to use a long arm, you can actually make video worse since the extra movement will induce jello shots, and I don't mean the good kind. I have mounts for my phone, radar detector, GPS, and several different bolt-on mounts for the gopro.

    This was originally a handlebar mount that I enlarged the holes and bolted to the tank. It's a great place for the phone or GPS mount. I got that idea from another forum member here, but can't remember who.

    I love these little mounts. You can put them just about anywhere there is a bolt.

    That looks like a brilliant set up too.
