Although, you could attach a little L bracket off the side of the mask, then attach the Go pro to that. That would work. Or make something that comes off the top of the tank. The Go Pro has such a wide viewing angle that it would get the front half of your body, and everything in front of you....giving a cool look.
I don't have the go pro camera yet, so I can't play with it, but I was thinking that maybe using the flat mounting plate on the left side of the mask, in the same location the ABV is on the right side.
I had not thought of putting it on the tank, I would like to see what the view looks like from there.
In dark water when I will also be using my Darkbuster Dive light, I think mounting the camera to the top of my light would be a good option.
Sounds like I need to just get the camera so I can play with some different options.
Any other thoughts on how to use the camera? One of the main reason's I'm looking at using the camera this way is to document underwater search & rescue operations.
Go pro came out with a sideways mount that is for helmets ect. It was 12.95 from go pro .com. I put one on the side of my guardian side window with a u clamp light mount ( held on with 3m tape same as the go pro base has from amazon) from dive gear express(6.00) on each side below the surface vent and the camera. I now have a place to mount my hog back up morph lights with video heads from DRIS It works great. Click the camera in the mount and the. Pop the two lights in and I'm ready to go. All for less than 25.00
We do offer an awesome mounting option for the GoPro. It works out great although compared to Herb's setup is a little more pricey. We have a Universal Rail which you can mount GoPros and dive lights on your mask.
Feel free to email me, and I can send you a .PDF on instructions on how it is installed.
