If you haven't seen the video from my last ride then have a look here. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=14222#p185322 Even with a side mount on the helmet and on our rough roads I still can't get a steady shot for to long. I wish I had one of those cams they use on a MotoGP bike as they seem to have mastered the bike vibration for their telecasts. Not urgent at the moment; maybe next years task.

Their using quite expensive gyro gimbals and advanced picture stabilizers.

Take a look at some of my videos and see if you think they are 'stable' enough (just curious for your opinion) -

About the same as mine from the couple I looked at.......watchable though a very small image in WMP. Maybe mine isn't that bad I just wish it was a little better.

I'm not into this kind of filming but can't you eliminate the instabilities afterwards in iMovie or some such video editing tool?

There is such software around but I would much prefer to minimise the instability before the edit stage.

A little more searching found this; 2 axis gimbal for GoPro cam

Bought the mount (Cost $21 delivered) so when it arrives I can drill the holes in my new shelf and get it powder coated when we go over to Port Pirie next fortnight.

Is this for the an 1100 and do you mean the plastics shelf under the screen?

If so a little advice, be prepared to strengthen the shelf with something between the edge, I have a RAM mount fitted on one of my 11's, the shelf itself isn't really that strong and I managed to crack mine with just the weight of a GPSV :(
