    Here's a video I made from wheeling last weekend with the New England TW group. It was a great time. Any suggestions about camera placement or editing are welcome.

    Wow! You're a brave man. I've paddled the bayou before and I wouldn't want to have to take a swim in it. Yikes

    Good job on finding it though! :thumbsup:

    Have any of you stuck the mounts directly to the body of the truck? Will the 3M adhesive tape damage the paint?

    Before I had my tacoma I put one adhesive on the windshield of my firends tacoma and there it stayed until he had to get a new one. I don't know about the paint but it will work on windshields

    If by ruin you mean come off without damsge-I wouldn't try it. There is a reason they are so cheap-They aren't made to come off.
    +1 for tethering the camera...I'm waiting to get the final decision about my camera because the suction mount failed and I did not tether it.

    Hmmmmm. Tough decision. I have the suction cup mount, just need to buy a tether. Then I have to decide what to tether it to depending on where I place it on the outside of the truck. I was just thinking the 3M adhesive tape could be removed in the same way I removed the decals on the truck. A blow dryer, fish line, & a little Goo Gone and it's like it was never there!

    The suction cup works well on the body, I use a piece of paracord attached from camera to truck somewhere easy.

    I have the same, tried it out a little bit but nothing good yet. I want 2 now, one facing forward and one facing behind! I used the mount on handle bars when I did that charity ride, it worked well. 18 miles of biking can't be fast forwarded fast enough to be interesting.

    Besides what they are intended for (video) I am having a hell of a time using it for pictures. I am blown away by what these little things can do.

    Here's a vid from wheeling last week. The bed was off my trail rig so I was able to point the camera over the rear wheels, came out pretty good. My passenger had fun with the handheld extension. Just wish I could get better sound. My 350 is loud as hell but you can't hear it because its a low tone, my buddies 22re comes in clear.
