Here's a cheap ($20) do-it-yourself mount you can attach to a helmet in order to put a HD video cam (or any camera that is compatible with a tripod mount) on your helmet.

I cut a mending plate (from home depot) and bent it to shape better the contour of the top of the helmet. I affixed a camera tripod mount (the top piece) to this mending plate by way of screws with locking washers (drilling the holes through the mending plate with a regular drill). I then drilled a bigger hole in the middle of the mending plate so that the camera-attachment screw would be accessible through the top vent hole in the helmet. I attached the mending plate to the helmet by rope and zip ties. Between the mending plate and the helmet I put spongy weatherproofing. The whole project probably cost less than $20. (I already had the helmet)

Here's what it looks like without a camera mounted:

With a camera mounted it looks like this:

and this:

The camera screw is accessable from inside the helmet through the top vent hole:

I was inspired to try to figure this out after reading about how many people have been duct taping HD cameras to their helmet.
