Step 1: What to Buy
First buy the Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 HD Camcorder with Swivel Head
Next buy a Bicycle Helmet if you dont already have one
Next buy Velcro Straps
Next buy a Cell Phone Carrying Case
Step 2: The Camcorder Strap
First you want to do is attach the carrying strap to the pocket size camcorder.
Step 3: The Camcorder in Cell Phone Carrying Case
Now modify the Cell Phone Carrying Case by cutting a hole in the bottom to pass the carrying strap through the hole (This will help secure the camcorder in the Cell Phone Carrying Case so it doesnt slide out when in motion).
Step 4: Case Modification
Now cut a side window in the Cell Phone Carrying Case so that you can operate the camera while it is attached to the helmet.
Step 5: Camera in Case
Now turn the Swivel Head lens out straight and place the Camcorder in the Cell Phone Carrying Case and pass the carrying strap through the hole in the Cell Phone Carrying Case and then fold it back into the case with the carrying strap.
Step 6: 4 Velcro Straps
Now attach the Camcorder to the Helmet using the 2 Velcro Straps. Turn on camera and start the movie.
Step 7: Notes
Note: you will want to make sure you have the rights settings on the camera and also use a small piece of tape to hold the Swivel Head lens in place. You will have to experiment with the Swivel Head lens placement to get the right angle that you desire.
