So So Camera Mount
on March 2, 2013
I own two of these, each mounted on different road bikes. The attachment to the bike is quite firm. However, at the point the camera attaches to the mount itself leaves something to be desired for one of the mounts. Where the camera actually mounts is not very substantial and the locking rotating platform has a lot of play. Between these two issues the video is quite jiggly unless on very very smooth roads. Same camera mounted on the other bike on the same roads gives decent video, while on the other bike its like watching video through a bowl of jello. Perhaps I'm just unlucky with the second one.
Update: Returned to Amazon for a replacement. As usual Amazon was great to deal with. Unfortunately the replacement was just as loose as the one I returned. When you mount the camera and lock it in place there is still enough play that you can easily jiggle the camera with little effort. It's not the strap that's the problem, it's the little rotating platform them camera sits on. The lock doesn't lock it firmly. I'll be looking for non-Contour alternative mounts.
