What's the best way to mount the camera?
I'm having trouble fitting the camera to my helmet - not too sure whether the mounting bracket for the camera should have the entry point facing upwards or downwards. Also the helmet feels very heavy on one side. I'm using the rubber strap at present and the camera's a bit unsteady. I have velcro straps which I could insert through the vents also. How does everyone else manage it?
For a while I had mine on my old Met helmet, with the velcro through the vents. It was off centre, because the shape of the helmet meant it wouldn't sit flat on the top (I have a pic on photobucket, but the site's down at the mo..). It did drag it down over one ear a bit. But I got a new helmet at the CTC Rally, a Giro, and it's got a better flat bit on top, so now it sits on top, central, velcro through straps - would take a pic, but haven't got my stills camera here today... I've set it so that camera slides into mount from behind, and I can pretty much take it out and replace it by feel now.
I haven't used the rubber strap - felt that velcro was safer. I'll have to use the rubber one if I ever get round to fixing it on my riding hat though - no vents!
I've had the odd time when the 'on' button doesn't want to work - not the record button, but the little on button to one side. I'm wondering if that's just because of the way it's made - it does take quite a hard push to contact through the rubber - and if you have dainty fingers like me, or remotely long fingernails (ie, protruding beyond the end of your fingers), it can be quite hard. Anyone else found it fiddly or difficult?
