    Go Pro Camera on FZR

    Hey all, I am looking at buying a Go Pro camera for my FZR. How is everyone going about securing the camera to the ski? I'll be doing 70 and wave jumping so I'm pretty sure the mounts it comes with won't hold up. Any ideas? The camera will be mounted to the ski, not a helmet Thx.

    the mounts will hold up bro, my friend has been using one the last few weeks on his rxp and the mounts are solid. He did tie a small safety tether around it just in case the mount gives, but to be honest its very solid!

    The adhesive is 3M VHB http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...istics/Strong/
    If you are worry about it, get the handlbar mount and which is what I use on the ski.

    wow that is really strong. Guess Ill 'stick' with the mounts its comes with. I will use a tether though, makes me feel better. After all, dont want my 200$ investment sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic

ID:	149441the screw moves from time to time that holds the camera on losing focus its great when you "submarining" with the trim down, the camera goes underwater for a moment, but no zoom lens, if you want all the bells and whistles a camera can offer, this won't work
