Pentax mounted to my mountain I stupid?!
Jun 28, 2013

So I have been wanting to get some good hd video of Mt. biking.  I also would love to do is do some interval pictures say every few seconds or so from a favorite trail, and then make a collage of the pictures.  Creatively I think there could be a lot of possibilities, I just don't want to ruin my camera in the process.

After searching far and low for something I couldn't find anything that either wasn't too expensive(gopro etc.) or too flimsy.  I have an old bogen tripod that is really sturdy so I took the head off of it and with just a little bit of hardware, attached it to my headset on my mountain bike.  Has anybody else done this and do you think the sensor can take the vibration of the riding.  I think the mount is super solid, just not sure about the internals of the camera.  What does everyone think?  The gopro would not be too much if doing something like this ruins my camera but as it is, the local bike shop gave me the parts and just asked to share the pictures, so I have nothing invested.  Here is a simple pic from my phone.

What do you all think?
