DIY stunt camera

From cnet
Here's a really ingenious way to record your cycling stunts. All you need is the old school bicycle bell that you use to warn pedestrians or irritate cats.

Jens Almstrom has found out that by removing the upper casing of the bell, there is usually a screw at the bottom chassis which has the same dimensions used for most tripod sockets. What he simply did was to mount the camera onto that screw, and there you have it--a simple fix to record your journey or stunts with your BMX.

Our advice is to not fumble with the controls while you're on the road, lest you cause any accident, or worst, damage your shooter. Keep to point-and-shoots for this experiment as a dSLR may make your ride unstable. If you've survived the experience, tell us about it below.
