That's pretty cool, not bad for $35 either. As much as I dislike getting bubbles in my video from my helmet mount, I like that the camera is facing in the direction that I'm looking while spearfishing. I think for my use, this would be a good mount for a second camera?

Great advice Mark
I use a helmet to keep the camera secure and the thick rubber bands from Mako Spearguns to keep the housing closed nice and tight. 90+dives with a gopro and haven't had a problem yet. I know if I used the head strap and never put another thought into it that my cameras would of been lost or flooded a long time ago.

I use a handlebar mount and mount mine right next to my second stage. The camera is inverted so you have to invert it in the settings. It works really good and is always recording what i am looking at and never has bubbles. I will try to post a picture of the set up later

Here's my <$5 GoPro mask mount for a mask that has a screw/bolt through the nose bridge.
