Has anyone thought about mounting a camera to their helmet? With the frequency of how much we turn our head, just sticking on a camera won't work as the resulting videos will be dizzying to say the least.

I've heard that gimbal stabilizers are decent. What is everyone else using? Or have you mounted the camera somewhere else?

I have just fitted it to the side of my helmet as most do.

No problems with vibrations or dizzynes... It is quite stable and I like that you can see where the rider is looking (makes it more "real").

Here is a video of me riding my old FJ1100 with the camera mounted on the side of the helmet:

Once you're not throwing your head around like a bobble head, you'll be fine. @XSR4EVER , that video didn't make me dizzy at all, quite enjoyable to watch it from that view as you feel much more engaged.

Hm... maybe take a look at different moto-vloggers and see what kind of setups they use and what would work for you the best ?

I don't do motovlog, but I use my helmet camera a lot for recording my personal videos of my trips and routes, I have mine in the front, I have a shark speed-R series 2, and the camera fits perfect in the front, so I didn't need to change or do anything.

Ill post some pictures.

Gopro seems to be one of the more commonly used cameras when it comes to helmets. Did you use the curved or flat adhesive mount and is there a way to have it closer to your helmet?

I used the curved one, fits perfect in my helmet, and regarding the distance it can be closer, I didn't find the way to put it just stick to the front, but it can be much more closer.

Im using GitUp git 2, it can compete with go pro, bunch of accesories, you can connect a micro, screen, and half price. I really like it for the price, I'm happy with no complains.

Thanks for the info, looks a decent alternative to gopro and at a good price. Great reviews too.
