|OK, forget for a minute how Fredly it would look to have a disposable camera duct-taped to one's helmet... Is there a way to do this where you could rig it to take pics without taking a hand off the bars? There are times when I'm descending and I'd love to have a pic, but I'm not about to stop, nor do I really want to reach into my jersey pocket and take out the digital.
Anyhow, I remember reading in a windsurfing magazine that people were able to rig these to the tops or their masts, and thus get some amazing shots.
Any ideas? This may wind up being just a theoretical discussion but, whatever.

|yes, it's real. Although I don't know if it's used for photos. A local racer used it for video and took the most awesome race footage at the training crit here in Brooklyn. It was a blast to watch, especially when he crashed (http://www.davidsommerville.com/cycling/rants/index.html).
Hope it helps!

|Don't attach things to your helmet. The leverage in a minor crash can break your neck. I wouldn't want a camera / headlight etc. punching through my helmet either. It's just plain stupid.|| |
