Video Editing.

I have recently been getting big into video editing and extreme sports film making. Im workin on a vid for a local car board that I admin on and want some footage of me and others with a tank cam view on the bikes. My question is how do they mount the camera? Can u buy a special mount for it or do they just duct tape that bad boy on there? Has anyone done this before or have any ideas?

Hey Bacardi...haven't seen you in a while. Welcome back. This is a good question for Twisty or one of the other members of WOS. They use camera mounts on some of their bikes and I think Twisty is going to be selling something like this as well. Look for his reply to this soon.

Yeah Twisty has a nice plexiglass and stainless steel made tank mount. It works really well!

Well we make are own. You can buy one of those "fits all bikes" But they dont work that well. Chev bought one and noticed when I was editing our vids this year that mine looked way better. What kind of bike to you have?

The ones I've seen mount using the gas filler cover screws, but they were designed for specific bikes.

I've seen racing video where the camera is mounted to the bike. The horizon tilting to each side is fun for a few seconds, but even the professional editors know that a viewer can only take so much of that.

To me, the best position of a camera would be on the helmet. That way, the horizon would not be as tilted, and the viewer would get the rider's view. You could tape a small camera to your helmet and use a camcorder that has an external video input, and put the camcorder in your tankbag or backpack. I've seen those small cameras on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...864841382&rd=1 when I typed in helmet.
