:?I have a DDV 920 that I would like to mount on a touring bike, either on the handlebars, or preferably, low down on the front forks using one of the braze-on points. Does anybody know where I could get such a fitting?

It's basically a marriage between a standard tripod mount and a bike bracket. I have had no luck in the local bike shops or camera dealers.

My hobby is cycle touring and I have seen a few movie clips on YouTube thatI would like to emulate.

If anyone has an :idea:it would be much appreciated.

1. I posted in the tripod section and no luck there, but some links or pics to what we're asking.

2. I made my own, and you can do the same, rather the bars I have it on the seat. so i get center action, you can get a mini one and tape it.

Thanks for the help.The pole mount wasvery interesting but I thought it would transfer too much vibration from the bike towards the camera. But your use of materials at hand was a good pointer. So I dug out that 'box of spare bits' that every cyclist accumulates over the years. I found an oldmounting bracket for a bike lock that I had never used. With the help of a bolt with the righttread and some plastic spacer rings, I now have a rock-solid handlebar mount for the video. The forecast is good for tomorrow morning so I hope to get some footage at last. It should be;"Sunlight! Camera! Action!" all the way tomorrow. I have also figured a way to mount the camera pointing back the road but I am somewhat reluctant to try that as the camera will be outside my field of vision. I will try the forward view first, then I can pull over if the thing gets loose.
