I debated posting a picture of what I googled saying "you have to zoom out" but I like you guys...
What you can't see in that pic are his balls hanging out the bottom of his shortsUm, I wanna go back to this point in the conversation - if this is what it looks like following Chester then I need to move to the East Coast so I can ride with him on a regular basis.
I previously went through 2 iPhone 11 pros in 2020 when mounting them to my mt09. Luckily they were still under warranty and Apple sent me a new one every time. During this time I was using the QuadLock handlebar mounting system and reached out to them explaining what was going on. They mentioned that they’ve had similar complaints and asked if I would be open to testing their then unreleased vibration dampening mount, to which I agreed. QuadLock vibration mounting system appears to work and my iPhone has yet to have a camera issue. I believe the vibration dampening system goes for $20 and will fit all existing QuadLock mounts. If you’re wanting to mount to the handlebars and not risk damaging your camera, I’d opt for it because in my experience it works.This is quite weird, but Apple is telling people with iPhones 7 and later that vibration from “high-power and high-volume“ motorcycle engines can be transmitted through phone mounts to the phone, and it could fry the electrics in your phone’s camera. What???
Exposure to vibrations, like those generated by high-powered motorcycle engines, might impact iPhone camerasExposing your iPhone to high amplitude vibrations within certain frequency ranges, specifically those generated by high-power motorcycle engines, can degrade the performance of the camera system.support.apple.com
Take it for what it’s worth. They don’t specify what “high power“ is - horsepower? RPM? - or what “high volume” is either. Is there a displacement cutoff? Number of cylinders? Engine configuration?
More fun in the 21st century! 🙄
