I use anti-fog inserts, works perfect, even in the winter when it's time for my drysuit.

Toby: Do your camera fog inside the case or outside? On hot days, I suppose you can get fog on the outside of the case. If that happens, I think the new black GoPro will bee setter, as it will heat faster by the sun.

Fogging happens when humid hot air comes in contact with a cooler surface. The hotter the air, the more water it can contain. When the air cools, it will loose its water. So if you trap hot air in the case, and cool it by dunking it in water, the air inside will loose water onto the cool surface on the inside of the case. If the outside air is hot, and you cool the case by dunking it in water, the outside air will loose its water onto the cool surface on the outside of the case. If the camera is black, it will heat faster by the sun after a dunking, and therefore not fog as much. That is my hypothesis, and I'm pretty sure I'm right. :wink:

GoPro polarizer filter also works well to prevent fogging http://www.polarprofilters.com/shop/gopro-polarizer-filter/

no, inside, just where the lens is...

Had the Contour out today...and it fogs as well, but not at the lens!

Thought this thread is a good one... Talking rigs for action cameras. Turns out it's another thread of how to make Gopro not to fog. We had this discussion allready, lets go back to camera rigs.

Agreed. Would be interesting to see the sales numbers for that mount after this post was posted. I ordered one minutes after reading this post. I have been thinking of making a mount like this on my own, but figured I would get a better mount, and it wouldn't cost that much more to buy one.

Another way to make that camera angle is by making your own gopro back mount:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2377989&hilit=gopro+mount

The most expensive part for me was buying a camelback small backpack. The rest of the supplies was about $15 total like the thread says. Works great and no destroying your harness.

www.airstyle.tv

The same harness I use also without filming. But the Pat Love two go keeps breaking on me...every single one...owned like 10 at least already...

I have now the xcite from ION...works fine.

These are seat harnesses,with a higher hook like a waist harness. I need seat because of a bad back.

I am planning to mount mine on a back protection shield. Mine is made for skiing, but they make them for motor cycle too.
