Subscribed, I'm on the fence about these, for I've had two Nikon coolpix break, one my fault. How are the still pix of people with no zoom feature?

"Chip Tank" is in Vacaville Ca..

I also got a suction mount. Apparently it's rated to 200mp/h, but it still makes me nervous.

This is a time lapse shot when I took her to winter storage a couple of weeks back.

I understand what you are saying about the suction mount!

I don't have a Go Pro, but on my motorcycle has some plastic side covers that are only held on my grommets and I have heard of people losing one if the wind gets under it and pops it off. You might not even notice when it happens, and they are rather expensive to replace despite just being plastic!

So as a precaution, I have mine also secured by using thin stainless fishing line leaders as additional tethers.

They are normally hidden inside the plastic covers and serve to tie the covers to the bike's frame. They are long enough to be easy to work with when removing the covers, but short enough that a cover would not drag on the ground if it did pop off the bike.

Maybe you could rig up something similar to use with your suction cup mount for added peace of mind!

I've got several GoPro's. The suction mount is extremely solid. Here's a clip from a road trip across Oregon Hwy 242 near Belknap Crater. Towing my Camp-Inn 560 teardrop (AS that was washed with water that was too hot).
