    Question RAM Camera Mount

    Howdy-

    I want to start taking more action photos during the rides, but I am not quite as brave as some of the others at just holding the camera out and shooting. I have been thinking about getting a RAM mount from CycleGadgets (http://www.cyclegadgets.com/Products...sp?prod=CAMERA).

    Anyone use one of these or another attachment method?

    Thanks.

    Just what I need... something else to do with my tax refund check. I've been waffling over purchasing a water resistant camera for use while riding, I think this mount just put me over the edge.

    Which of the assorted Powershots did you go with? I am leaning towards the Pentax mostly because of it's weather resistant qualities and small size. I figure something small enough to live in my Roadcrafter wants to be happy in the rain (this is Seattle after all). I did see they have come out with a 4.0 version...

    S50

    If you want to see some pictures, check out the thread Are you a digital photography nut

    The waterproof case is a $160 option.

    I've got an S400, but weatherproofness isn't part of it's MO.

    Takes a nice picture, though.

    KBasa-

    I think your camera might be busted. It seems to take some odd pictures.

    1) Why does the vodka look red?
    2) I did not know that BMW made a VFR model.

    How 'bout these?





    To add something constructive to the conversation instead of some random photos, I use a credential holder as a tether. I loop the tether around my collar and stash the camera in the big upper right pocket my 'stich has. I can reach in with my left hand, power up the camera and take some snaps while I'm riding.

    If I have a problem, the tether is long enough that I can drop the camera in my lap and pick it back up when I can give it my full attention again.

    Yep. I loop the camera's strap around it.
