    I have a great mount that I purchased and it is solid.

    At the base there is a hole where I can run a bolt and attach to the bottom of my camera and take video. Problem is if course that there is a lot of vibration.

    Any thoughts on how to reduce this? I have a rubber washer on either side of the bolt to isolate it from the mount but its just not enough.

    More rubber washers?

    Might need something softer, I dunno.

    Rubber washers will absorb some but I don't think nearly enough to stop a camera from jittering.

    This might sound counterintuitive but have you tried a solid mount? Most of the helmet cams I have seen have been mounted sans any vibration dampening devices and seem to do just fine. I would think the rubber bushings just lead to play and more vibration vs. a solid mount.

    I'm going to put rubber between the clamp which holds it to the handle bars. I'll report back.

    Thanks!
