You’ve recently acquired an embedded camera and now you’re in a hurry to try it out during your sports sessions?
Yes? But you do not know how to fix it on your sports equipment?
Two solutions are available to you:
> You can try to tinker with a tape and wire with the risk of losing your brand new camera to the first jolt.
> Or you could be smarter and read the article below. If you do so, you’ll know which fastener is the most suitable for your sport and you complete your range of the sportsman accomplished with the ideal fixation for your camera.
1. THE INDISPENSABLE
Changing altitude and temperature, whether in the water or on dry land, means fogging in your camera housing!
The anti-fog filters are therefore a basic essential whatever your camera model.
You will also notice that our cameras are sold with two self-adhesive “pad” fasteners allowing to be fixed on a multitude of surfaces, from the flattest to the most curved. It’s up to you to decide where you want to position it!
Note that they can be removed under the effect of heat (hair dryer for example) but they are not reusable.
2. IF YOU HAVE FREE HANDS
Whether your sport solicits your hands or not, choose a telescopic boom!
The advantage of the boom for a selfie is that it allows to easily take different angles of view and can retract to hold in a pocket when you do not need it anymore!
3. IF YOU HAVE A VENTILATED HELMET TYPE
Its “action cam” on the head allows reliving the experience thoroughly: the camera films what you watch during your sports session. Ideal to film your tracks, a little less adapted if you want to film the scenery that passes unless you take the time to stop to admire them.
As such, the ventilated helmet attachments can be practical and are highly demanded by mountain bikers.
For helmets called non-ventilated helmets (riding, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding, rollerblading) prefer the use of self-adhesive pads.
The trick: To get sharp images, avoid abrupt head movements as much as possible.
4. IF YOU HAVE TUBE FORM (HANDLEBAR TYPE)
Mainly used by cyclists, tube fasteners are suitable for any type of tubular support: bike handlebars, seat post, hockey stick, fishing rod, ski stick, windsurf wishbone, etc.
Easily adaptable and with a reliable outfit, these fasteners allow you to film yourself during the effort as well as to film your action and the surrounding landscapes.
5. IF YOU HAVE A FRAGILE SPORT MATERIAL
The mounting brackets allow you to fix your camera without damaging the surface of your material: paddle board, kayak, boat, etc.
Caution: these bindings are not designed for “high impact” sports (surf, skis, snowboards, etc.).
When placing it on your stand, be sure to ensure that your camera is oriented so that it does not film your feet.
6. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SPECIFIC SPORTS EQUIPMENT
Two options are available to you:
– The frontal attachment for head or helmet
These bindings are a bit like a headlamp and make your sports outings look as if you were there!
– Fastening type harness for the upper body
If you want to get more stable video clips, the harnesses are perfect! These attachments, placed at the level of the chest, benefit from the fact that the upper body is less often in motion than the head or the hands.
