Camera Mount

I am looking for a simple (and cheap) way to temporarily mount a camera. I don't want a permanent shelf, just a quick clip on/off type arrangement. I have looked at regular camera clamps but can't find anything that will fit the LT handlebars.
Anyone done similar with an aftermarket clamp or even velcro?

Smile This might work

Hi,

So long as your camera isn't too big and heavy, their is here in the UK a small folding camera tripod called an ULTRA POD which is able to be folded small and velcroed to things like gate posts, scaffolding, tree branches etc I have found this American link if it is of any use to you. http://www.pedcopods.com/products.htm

I use a small one on a compact camera and it is great, but I havent tried it on the handlebars.

Regards

Stuart

Ram Mounts makes a ball mount that utilizes the auxiliary mirror holes on each handle bar. You can then get a Ram mount arm and camera baseplate. Screw the baseplate to the bottom of the camera and attach the arm to both balls and off you go. Not very expensive either and appears to be sturdy enough. If you need a picture I can shoot one tonight when I get home from work.

Thumbs up He did say cheap!

I think the ultra pod is the way to go, I have medium sized one.

perhaps stating the obvious, but make sure your camera lens it out of the airflow - basically behind the windshield. you don't want all the crap that hits your windshield to hit your camera lens - unless you don't mind it being a disposible camera.

Gadget Mount / Panavise Mounts

Our system is more robust, chrome mounting hardware is warrantied for life and Panavise products offer greater range of adjustments in all directions..works and looks better.... !

Panavise has been producing mounting systems for cameras, electronics, etc. longer than RAM...

Look under Gadget Mounts...
