  • GoPro Video Camera mount?

    my buddy just purchased a GoPro Hero 2 camera. He wants to attach it to my goalie helmet. he is also worried that a puck might hit it.

    Any ideas how i should mount this?

    Could be outside or inside of the helmet.

    It comes with a helmet mount. You're not going to get it inside your helmet. If a puck hits it, then he's out $300, although the shell is pretty tough. I might advise mounting inside the net, you'll get better video.

      Here's a link to my channel.

      I've used the vented helmet strap mount to mount the camera inside the goal.

      The suction cup mount to mount it on the glass behind me, and I've used the elastic head mount for the POV.

        Top of helmet mount looks odd during replay. It's as if you were a 7 foot tall goalie with a neck brace.
        In net cam is okay but gets old because you don't see how the puck was shot. Glass cam behind the net or side view facing goalie is better.

          I wouldn't worry too much about a puck breaking it...those shells are pretty tough. We used them to shoot a car explosion once. We had one inside the car and a few right outside and they were all returned and the footage was obviously fine. Don't even think the plastic cracked when it was tossed back, at least not over the lens.

            I'm considering buying one of these before I start playing again in the fall.

                I'd love it to see what I am doing wrong and how I can improve.

                  Yeah, as Wong stated, the glass mount is great... definitely provides a better view of the developing play that you sometimes cant see with the ingoal cam.

                  here is a still from a recent session:

                      Go PRO!

                      I have put mine on the glass.

                      Hung it in the net.

                      Put on my mask.

                      All have unique perspectives.

                      On the mask... on the big screen you may get a little nauseous watching the footage!

                          I saw a video recently about a man who went surfing and had his GoPro fall in the ocean. It spent 4 months on the ocean floor until a fishing boat which was dragging a net picked it up. He saw a classified add with a picture of the camera and went to pick it up and guess what? the camera was way ok, the footage too, and all of this after 4 MONTHS on the ocean floor. I use some for ski videos with my friends too. Once it wasn't properly mounted and fell of my friends helmet on a 70 foot jump... we just watched it fall down, hit a rock, have the casing break, roll down the mountain without the protective casing, hitting rock after rock after rock, to finally pick it up at the bottom of the mountain and notice the lens is perfect, and the footage is fine. We still use that one as a matter of a fact.

                            Jukka had a nice helmet mount going; can't remember the thread through. It was attached at the top of the cage instead of the top of the mask so the goalie didn't seem like an absolute giant.

                              As someone stated above, I use the vented helmet strap mount to affix to the top of my helmet. Works very well.
