    Sony Action Cam Chest Mount


    http://www.amazon.com/Sony-AKACMH1-C...am+chest+mount

    I am pretty close to buying this. I was wondering if anyone else had experience with this. The thing I am worried about is since the cam sticks out so far is if I fall I feel like I would either crack the mount or crack a few ribs.

    Or if anyone has fallen with this mount or the GoPro chest mount, what happened?

    Kind of a late reply, but I have the Sony chest mount. It seems to be made to break away in case of disaster, but it won't be pretty if that ever happens. It is a decent mount, but while the Sony form factor is very nice for some applications, this is probably the weakest one for it.

    Does this harness tighten enough to prevent the cam from shaking and getting shaky footage?

    Yeah, it can get uncomfortably tight if you want to cinch it down that far. But the camera will never be absolutely stable on this kind of mount. That said the video always looks very stable because of the camera's stabilization feature.

    Can you share any videos shot using this mount?

    Here is my video using the action cam chest mount this past summer. Not a bad mount. I did land on it once, nothing broke, the mount or my ribs. I mean I don't recommend landing on it lol. But if you do it is pretty durable. The one thing I would say is that because the cam is larger than a GoPro it sticks out more. I had done a stand up and knocked my bike computer off the handle bars with the camera. So I would just be wary of how close the cam is to your bars

    Do you think the new small and lighter sony camera would reduce the shaking even more?
