I’ve been tinkering with trying to mount the Contour HD camera onto my earmuffs or anywhere I can film my shooting from the first person POV. Trying to mount it with glue, sticky foam, home made rigs, official Vholdr accessories.. nothing worked!
Till I saw Aristotle’s post on using cable ties to secure his headcam.
So I took the official ContourHD round velcro mount, removed the bottom velcro base unit and used the top part. I secured the mount to the headband using velcro cut into an oval shape :
the only reason for doing that is the headband is flexible, so I needed the velcro base to allow the mount to “move freely” when the headband flexes. Problem with that is, it moves freely 🙂
so this is where the cable ties come into play, I secured the mount down using black cable ties :
then because the mount is smooth, the ties could slip out, I used a 4” cable tie to bind the left and right cable ties :
with this configuration it’s AMAZINGLY secure. the whole mount will not move or shake, yet it will withstand the flexible nature of the headband:
Here’s how the Contour HD looks like when it’s on the mount :
I’m happy. now to take this to the range and give it a whirl. Stay tuned to more videos on my Youtube page
