Help! Questions about virbration absorbtion for SLR bicycle mount Answered
Firstly I just stumbled upon this site while searching for answers to my build and on 1st glance it looks great! Loads of cool stuff to try..
Anyway, I'm looking at building myself a camera mount for my Canon 350D to go on the front of my bike.
My main issue/worry is vibration running through the bike and the mount to the camera and damaging it.
I've seen loads of instructions on how to make bike mounts on here, but am still worried about the damage that could be done to my camera (my pride and joy!) if I undertake my project without dampening any vibrations from the road.
I'm going to be doing timelapse/stills photos from the front of my bike around London (not the smoothest of roads!) so want to be sure I won't be damaging my camera doing it. The front of my bike has decent suspension so should take the hit of the bigger bumps but it's the smaller, higher frequency vibrations that worry me.
I've searched as well as I can at 2am but can't find any of the instructions covering the topic of vibration, so I was wondering if there are any mounts or heads out there that are designed for this purpose or if anyone has built something similar with success (or lack of camera damage anyway!)
As I'm doing stills work I don't mind about it being slightly 'wobbly' it's more the vibrations that worry me.
I've found websites selling anti vibration materials (http://www.farrat.com/anti_vibration_materials.html) so I wonder if that could be incorporated into a more general design.
Thanks in advance for any tips or links! And sorry if this has already been covered but I've not found it!
