I had a cheap point and shoot camera laying around. I decided to mount this to my car. It can shoot video at 640 X480 at 30 fps. I figured this would be good enough for short autocross races.
Step 1: Where to Put the Camera
Step 2: Mounting the Camera
Step 3: Making the Mount
In the hole I mounted a fastener stack consisting of the ¼” bolt, a ¼” flat washer, the strip of aluminum, a ¼” flat washer, a ¼” lock washer, and then 2 x ¼” nuts. The first nut should be tightened. You can even put Loctite on this nut if you have some. This will keep the bolt stationary when you are attaching the camera. The second nut can remain loose for the time being.
The other hole in the aluminum strip was for mounting the camera holder in the car. I removed the clip that holds up the passengers side visor. I reattached it with the screw going through one end of the mount.
