Oregon Scientific ATC3K helmet cam/RAM mount

Just got one of these beautys for Christmas and wondering if anyone knows of a specific RAM mount that would work for installing it on my Wee.

Cheers

If it has a standard camera tripod mount (1/4"x20) then there's some RAM options. The basic camera mount is the RAM-B-202AU; you can add arms and the usual other RAM stuff to that.

If you want to shoot forward theres no need for a RAM mount.







and if you have a Vee there is an identical mount on the left.

A couple of sample videos.

Thanks guys, it does have a threaded portion for a mount. The master cylinder approach looks easy enough too.

this gives me an idea. if you have the mirror extenders then you could replace the bolt that attaches it to the handlebar clamp with one that's threaded on both ends. the top threads would match the standard camera mount thread. make sense?

I used the small Velcro loop that came with the ATC3K I bought last year and tried putting the camera on my engine guards. You could have calculated the engine RPM by the jitter I suffered. I'll have to try putting it on the res. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have to take it off my RC-Cam to use it on the Strom though. Yeah, it gets some awesome pictures.

Say, maybe one of you guys can tell me how I can add music to a video taken with the camera.

What program do I need, etc?

cheers!

Any video editing program should do it. I can't remember what I used but try Microsoft Movie maker (free download if you don't have it already) to start with.

If you want to go a little more deluxe route.....Motorcyle Larry makes a master cyl cover that has one or two (opiton) mounts for a 1/2-20 Ram mount. He also sells the ball and 1/4 - 20 unit you'd need to work with the RAM. I have one and works well with shorter arm - 2.5 inches I think.

The Rick Hughers mirror extenders can also be ordered with a tapped hole 1/4-20 to accomplish the same thing.
(Have those as well)

Both options work for me although my video is different - I use a Canon 710 for video on the bike.

Re: vidoe - MS Movie Makers is good, simple and intuitive - I personally use Adobe Premiere Elements because it is what I have but my university daughter has done some pretty impressive stugg with family videos using Movie Maker.

Hope that helps.
