I just keep my digital camera slung around my neck/shoulder and use my left hand to shoot the picture. This way if I have to let go it will just hand on my side by the strap.

I would like to do it with dangerous car drivers, but unfortunately in Italy is not allowed to mount addons like uzi. I'll look for a 007 gun-camera

I've got two favorite "shooting while riding positions":

The first is the windshield supported shooting position:



the second is the handlebar windshield lateral supported shooting position:




Sorry guys but I couldn't resist!

shooting?

I just have it in my tank bag and pull it out whenever needed. Usually I stuff my glove under my leg / crotch to pull that off and then manage the zipper... wow - this is taking a nasty turn. Just snap the pick and put it back in.

I thought that's what cruise controls were for. Next time check out "Magnum Force" and watch David Soul shooting his gun while riding his Guzzi police bike. I think he may be left handed anyway..

The truth is they always have offhand challenges in IDPA, so I end up having to practice it anyway. Would come in handy for the bike though...

Even for a camera. I know my Canon S400 is way easier to pull out and shoot with my right hand because of the placement of the screen and capture button. Doing it with the left hand is tricky, and in addition to nearly dropping it, I've taken crappy shots because my hand covers up the LCD.

I like the idea of a helmet cam with a remote trigger option....

Left handed.

On occasion I have taken photos while riding. When I do, I use my left hand, place the camera upside down and use the left thumb to press the button. Photos taken with either digital or SLR can always be rurned right side up.

Just keep in mind that riding is your first priority, and that you go where you look. It seems obvious, sure, but I once wadded up a perfectly good GSXR1100 while being the chase camera bike. My photo subject, riding a nearly identical bike, hit a bump mid corner and fetched up on his engine cases, treating me to an amazing shower of sparks, plastic, and flying debris. I had a tank mounted motor wind SLR that I was operating via a squeeze bulb against my knee. I kept snaping pictures and forgot the cardinal rule of RIDE THE BIKE. I followed the other rider right off the road.
The real pisser was that, in addition to wrecking both bikes, the camera was wrenched open and all of the film was exposed. All I have to show for the experience is a pinkie that doesn't bend properly.

You might need a sidecar, and a helper to do the shooting.

Helmet Cam recomendations

Hello,

I am starting to look for a helmet cam and wanted to ask for opinions and recomendations.

And: Do any of them come with a wide angle lense?

Thanks,

Paul

They used helmet cams in "Long Way Round". All their gear was the best of the best so I'm sure the cams were no exception if you can just find out what they used. I just did an Internet search "helmet cams" and got a ton of returns.
Good luck
