Homebrew camera mount

Why GoPro when you can GoKodak? This guy mounted his point and shoot camera to his handlebars using a reflector mount and what I think is a 1/4-20 screw. It held for a whole cyclocross race and got some decent if slightly shakey footage of the start until the camera gave up at 3 1/2 minutes.

The camera recorded for 29 min. The battery wasn't quit dead, and the memory wasn't full, so I think it might have overheated. I'll see how it does in races with cooler temps.

Hey, thanks for chiming in. Do you think that perhaps there's just a limit set in the camera software? That would still be enough to catch some good mountain bike action, like a particularly scenic downhill.
