You probably knew this was coming.
Turns out that the P6000 doesn’t have any stabilization while shooting video so I should have switched back to the much lighter Zi6 camera before pressing on with my ride.
Here’s the video footage it was capturing when the failure happened:
I don’t blame the $8 mount – I pushed it too far by riding for an extended period on a gravel trail that was very bumpy and had elevated the camera with a mini-ball head mount making it even less stable.
Fortunately the camera appears to be fine, if not a little dirty.
Lesson learned. I’m probably going to buy the same $8 mount (which the ebay seller sells a little bit cheaper on his website here) and be a little more careful with what I put on it.
