I thought I was reading here recently about someone who was building a mounting bracket to attach their digicam to their motorcycle.
I'd like to do the same thing. I've taken a few shots from my bike, and it was horribly unsafe. I probably shouldn't have done it.
I think I will use tubes of steel, like you see holding mirrors on large trucks and buses. Simple "hanger iron" won't be strong enough. If you look down from above, I suspect the handlebars and my home-made mount will form the shape of a diamond.
I will use a UV filter to protect the lens from bugs. I don't know yet if I will need a wide-angle lens though.
Any help building this would be greatly appreciated.
