    Clyde Sharing GoPro tips with Fellow Clydes (all join in)

    Been lots of discussion lately on GoPro recorders. If you got any money saving tips or something helpful, feel free to post for the benefit of us Clydes.

    I watched quite a few videos on youtube about grenade handle used to hold the recorder allowing freehand footage. Others on youtube are making home made handles but what a hassle. After bonding supplies etc, seems you've spent more. Well the Grenade handle is $22, not bad but this gave me an idea, why not just use a small tripod?

    This small tripod I found at Target on those corner gift idea racks. A small tripod and flashlight for $5!!!! I have flashlights but I had been looking for another small tripod to use as a handle. The small tripods I have are about $15 and the cheap plastic breaks while mounting.

    But tripod is made of a steel ball and tightens with a steel screw. It has flexy legs if you want to hang on a pole etc. It tightens much more securely than the other tripods I have. I use it like the grenade handle (I used it in my GMR video yesterday/side views) Works very well and cheap!

    I hold it by the legs and I also attach a wrist strap to the go pro case just in case I happen to lose grip while riding.

    This is the small gimbal like system that's holding securely compared to the othe more expensive tripods I've tried.

    This is the Grenade handle fo the GoPro $22...looks pretty bulky IMO.

    I like to shoot vids with the GoPro mounted on different parts of the bike also. This is a good example
