I'm looking into getting a mount for my iphone to do ride videos with. I'm thinking a chest mount might be the way to go but I have no experience here. What do folks like to use to record their rides? I don't want to spend too much as I don't plan to start vlogging or anything. It would just be cool to have some ride videos to include in my build threads. Thanks!
 
I use

1. Cheap GoPro knock off from Amazon. Was like $65 and came with all sorts of mounts and options for bikes and stuff
2. My iPhone on a cheap powered gimbal from Amazon. Shove the gimbal handle into the center of a pool noodle and it allows me to be hands free while the gimbal stabilizes the shot

The chest mounts I found to add too much shaking and distortion. YMMV

My ride video on the Canal Cruiser is a good example how not to do it. I used a silicone rubber phone holder and bungie cords (shown in post). Nothing but shake, rattle and roll going on😵

Thanks for the suggestions, I'm going to look into the cameras on Amazon and a gimbal seems like a good idea. Where to you attach the pool noodle? To the bike or your person?

Kind of shaky for sure. I was also looking at making a chest mount from shock cord but it seems like a chest mount might not be the best option.

On youtube, Spindatt uses a chest mount sometimes and Sam Pilgrim uses helmet mount. But they are pros and have much better stuff than I'll be using.

In my stash bag on the handlebars

And all the newer GoPro stuff has built in image stabilization
