Hi Guys,

I mounted My HD-1080p on the Top Tube of my MTB and did some downhill riding at 7-Springs in PA. I got a good dozen runs in before the tripod mount broke off. I basically clamped a Manfrotto Superclamp to the downtube and used a Manfrotto 482 ball head to get the camera to peer over the handlebars. It worked really well and was solid but I abused the camera to the point where it just broke off. I'm impressed with the durability of it though, it hit the front tire a bunch of times and it still works great, just no tripod mount anymore.

Heres a video:


Anyway, I'd like to find a bracket for this thing to mount to the manfrotto rig thats durable. Does anyone have any suggestions?

thanks for that video.

the bottom of this cam, like the jazz are simular, the jazz has a screw in the center , and that broke off the tri as well. so I hear ya.

1. something very easy can be made and a simple pic is needed to show so for give my drawing.

this is a box place the cam in it is deeply seated and will not pop out extra protection a rubber band on top to keep in if the whole thing comes off the cam is protected.

it is an idea
