Does mounting a camera on the side of your mask create a noticeable imbalance of weight? And do sticky mounts stick to soft ears well? My current plan is to use a sticky mount on a soft ear, then use the bike mount to orient the camera the right way. Is there a better way to mount a Go-Pro on my Events? Thanks for reading.

Dont do it! I tried this with mine and it created a horrible weight imbalance with mine. What i would do and what i did is i got the seat pole mount for bikes and but it on my barrel-it works amazingly.

Why not?

Alright, thanks for the warning. I personally really don't like barrel cams though, would putting the visor on and putting the camera on that help? Would the mask slide down from the weight?

I actually just saw a video about that. You could get a head strap for the gopro and wear that above the mask. I haven't tried it yet, but you could give it a shot.

Yeah I normally use the headstrap, buf it's very awkward to wear with a mask. Seems like putting the visor on and sticky mounting that will be easiest.

if you put the gopro on top of your mask (on a visor) it will take lots of video of your loader,

side of your mask works but you will need to keep your mask fairly snug to keep it from sliding down.

barrel cam gets a good view when shooting but anytime you run you get alot of nothing.

try it on the side of your mask, luckily the gopro mounts can come off fairly easily within a few minutes.

Would dual strapping it help with the weight issue?

That would be hilarous to see!!!!!
