Unfortunately, I don't have any video to share at the moment, as my motorcycle had to have a battery charge up and I am heading out of town for a day or so. Any rate, I thought it may be of interest to show a DIY dog helmet project I am currently working on. Not just making the DIY Dog Helmet, but using it to capture some video from the dog's unique prespective, too. I made up the helmet from an old set of hockey shin guards or knee pads. They cost me about $5 bucks at a thrift store and were very, very easy to cut and adapt for my purposes. The DIY helmet fits small to medium dogs at least, but one can try to see what other size may be adapted for larger dogs, too. I slapped on some 3M Dual Lock tape to secure the GoPro camera to the top of the helmet. I am not 100% sure that my dog won't try to shake the camera to one side when we are riding, but I'll find out and do some tweeking when he actually gets to make a video production. Total cost of the project was less than $7 bucks, so no big fortune invested if it does not work out for some reason. If the GoPro is too heavy, I can still try out a small, thin point and shoot camera, but so far, it looks promising.
I'll get some video as soon as I can, but for now I just have the set at flickr to sort of explain just how the helmet mount set up and DIY Dog Helmet was made. I am anxious to get back and check it out to see if it is a keeper or not, as far as a DIY camera mount.http://www.flickr.com/photos/a1930ford/ ... 800670206/
