video camera holder

At loads of track days i see people with a video camera holder on the rear window, i assume by a suction pad. I would like to film my track days/drag runs etc so want one. I just cant find anyone that sells them. Any idea where people get them from, how much are they? Cheers

this has been discussed before, have a search of the archives and you’ll find some links to web-sites…

You can buy an “eagle-eye” lens for camera’s so you can stick it on top of you helmet or put it up-front under the bonnet while the camera is safely in a bag inside.

I have been out kitesurfing and snowboarding with this on my helmet and the view is spectacular. I learned a lot about the minor mistakes I made from what I’ve seen myself do. If you take care when mounting it to your helmet, you can see your hands and surrounding environment. Definitely a good learning experience and allows for some very special foteage.

I know I’ve got a link to a related website somewhere, but can’t seem to find it at the moment. I’ll post it if I can find it back.

Be warned, that a few tracks I have been too don’t allow suction mounts eg Silverstone.

I use a one from b-hague that bolts on the harness bar, not as versatile as a suction mount, but i have never had any problems.

I have the suction mount detailed above and have done Silverstone twice this year and used it…although at the briefing they say that it has to be secured by a secondary method, it has never been checked…and to be honest i dont think a secondary method is required - its difficult enough to lever off when you have finished!

Definitely a quality product but go for the additional clamp offered as part of a package and you have the best of both worlds…
