Camera fixing!??

Post by 50something » Jan 13th, '21, 21:13

Hi

Looking at possibly getting a bullet camera as am joining the Experts at parcMoto this year. I’ve got some track fairings for my bike but would like to attach a camera to it I’ve already chosen the set up but I cannot find any way of attaching a bullet camera to the fairings as a permanent fixture I am led to believe you cannot use suction pads et cetera as it has to be firmly fixed which is fine and I’m not going to take it off! So I’m looking for some way of fixing it which I assume means some sort of bracket which can be screwed to or fixed to the fairing
I’m not going down the go pro route so it has to be a bracket that will take a bullet camera

The bullet cameras usually use a pipe clamp type of mount if they dont have a threaded insert.

Do you have the camera already?
Go pro mounts are cheap and readily available. Can be used easily and the decent 3m sticky pads do work wonders.

Lots of companies now want to see it securely mounted and a additional leash as a fail safe if the mounting does let go.

Sounds like a job for a 3d printer

Most youngsters are easily confused; it's good practise for if you ever get old.

Back on topic, because I'm interested now on the camera mount.

P.s. si having a 3d printer does make life easy

I have seen a bullet camera mounted with a P clamp simple and affective and doesn’t look out of place 👍👍👍

Still got some old 3d coins tucked away 😉😉😉
