I'm looking to record some rides. Any recommendations on cameras and mounts?
Is there a name for it or a brand?
Cool, I will check them out. Hopefully I wont be in any deep water...I like Contour cameras and I own 2 of them. Cheaper than GoPro, same video quality, low profile mounting (you wont have a brick hanging off your helmet or bike). I also like, but don't own, Drift Innovation cameras. From what I can see, they generally have better video quality, they are low profile like the Contours, they have a built in LCD screen so can change camera settings without your PC and view videos (I think) to make sure it is aligned properly. And if you buy the right model of the contour and Drift camera, they are waterproof and don't require a case for mounting or waterproofness unless you are taking the camera into deep water.
Cool i will check it out, thanks.I like my Sony AS100V. Video is comparable to the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition and has much better low light performance. I'm not sure how it stacks up with the Hero 4, but it's significantly cheaper. The factory mounts kind of suck, but you can get a GoPro to standard camera screw adapter (which is what the Sony uses) that allows you to use GoPro mounts off of Amazon for a couple of bucks.
