Default Mounting a GoPro camera on your M

Doesn't have to be on an M but anyone have any creative ways and spots on the sled to mount a GoPro? especially to get the good perspective of a hill climb.

The best perspective I've found for hillclimbing is on the front of the hood down low. Gives a decent view on the steepness. It doesn't work so great when you are in the deep pow though.

You can also use the suction mount on the side of your hood if you trust it enough to stay on. Another reasonable view is with the chest mount. I also like to wear the chest mount backwards from time to time while climbing. It's a cool view too. Here's a vid climbing while wearing it backwards: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-GlAA4Sf6A

You can see my front mount on the hood in this pic.

Nice vids! I thought about using the suction on the tunnel pointing backwards but thought of it an hour ago lol

With the mount on the hood, do you get camera shake from vibrations?

Couple different angles in this vid



All done with the suction mount. I think when it's mounted on the hood facing forward it makes everything pretty flat. I think helmet or chest mount would work better for forward facing perspective.

Get a few at idle. Other than that it's crystal clear.

I've found the opposite. I can't get any perspective of the steepness of a hill unless it's mounted on the hood. The chest and especially the helmet cam seem very flat to me.

What cam are you running?

It wasn't mine but I'm pretty sure its the go pro hero hd and I was shooting in 720p. All I kmow is that some of those hills are pretty steep in the beginning of my video but it looks like I'm meadow mashing.

I personally think that is the biggest drawback to the GoPros. Just too wide of a view on them.

Here's another video with the gopro suction mount on the hood.

Nothing super steep, but gives a decent view.
