The GoPro I have records in MP4 then the GoPro editor converts it to AVI or MOV for further processing (adding sound and titles etc.) then back to MP4........that's the basics

I ordered a suction cup mount a couple weeks ago and it arrived in Mondays post.

First I did the medium view and then added the narrow view for comparison. The medium is ok but it seems unnaturally fast while the narrow view picture is a little more shaky. But then it could just be our local steets. I like the cam located here better than on my helmet.

GoPro has three view settings (on 1080p at least) wide, medium and narrow and I guess it works like the zoom does on a standard still/video cam.

I have yet to try the wide (angle) but through the cam's screen it appears to fish eyed for my liking as do the stills I took accidently over the weekend.

Alan, that mounting position only works cause you had the badges removed.
I've a single cup suction mount and would need to place that on the lower faring, or the pannier lid instead.
My cable cam (diameter of a C-cell) on a DVR (featuring a 2" TFT) came with multiple mounting brackets, but just didn't have the heart yet to drill holes in the various locations around the bike... :?
I like the shown low position at the side/s, thinking about top of crash-bar covers as well as below the headlight myself...

Australian 1100 models never got any badges or ST1100 decals in that position. We only got the ST1100 decal on the side cases as part of the pin striping. I just needed a cam position better than my helmet which might be okay in the city but on rural roads a position on the bike seems better. Once the HID driving lights are installed (waiting on mounts) I can use a sticky mount placed on one of those.

One of the guys on Ozstoc wanted to see the wide angle shot from the same position so down our street was born.
