I'm wondering if the GoProHD camera's chest mount might work with that camera. I've see other people zip tie regular digital snap shot cameras on video mode and filmed to show the handle bars set back enough to give a good in the action perspective while keeping it on the body which is probably the best way to help with a stable image.

So I was looking around the room to see if anything would hold my Flip Mino HD snugly, and I found that my iPod 3G Nano armband (from Belkin) holds it perfectly. The slot cuts off under the lens, and the clear side where you would press on the iPod dials are right over all the controls. So this got me thinking,

What if I cut off this "pocket / sleeve" and adapt it onto the CamelBak?
This model here is a

Griffin Streamline iPod 3G Nano armband, but it comes with the slits on the sides / an armband that should (should!) wrap around the straps of a CamelBak. You could also find a plastic buckle and sew it back onto the band so that it could release / unclip when taking off the CamelBak.

I'll update this once it comes in. These things are only 5 dollars shipped on Amazon.

So my little iPod armband came in, and i just took the armband strap off, and just put it on my camelbak sternum strap, and put the flip into the little spot.
here are the pictures:

Gripes?
Flip Mino HD doesn't have a wide enough viewing angle.
I haven't been on the trail yet (due to the weather) with it, but soon. soon.
