Default Camera mount options

A body/head mount or a detector mount?

I have a few different ones but this hat mount has been working great!
https://www.ebay.com/itm/360-Rotary-...QAAOSwwI1ajQMQ

Cheap, fully adjustable, secure, and quick/easy to mount.

I also bought this one and do not recommend it:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Camera-Cap-...UAAOSwYS9ZaH0m

Broke it the first time I used it.

I donít but my new camera will allow me to live stream and post directly to SM. I used to record a bunch but never liked any of my options because no voice commands but the GP 7 Black is amazing compared to the others. The stabilization is fantastic

I think a head mount is my go to option. Headwear doesnít change for me but layers do when itís cold hot etc. I donít want to have to continually make adjustments

Youíre on it Mike,Iíve used a Chesty and it didnít work,POV was completely wrong. If you want the viewer to see what YOU see,a headmount(I just use the GP headband with integral mount) is the way to go. Also...I just got my Nechkitter GPHero5 Session cage and itís a VERY nice cage,a whole lot more robust than the plastic cage mine came with,I donít know which camera youíre looking at exactly.
Back to your original question! For POV realism,headmount.

Head mount.
You can see the screen if you want, see the hole being dug and recovery...
Looks stupid, works good.

Head mount it with the skull strap mount over your head and use your phone to get the angle right. This way you can wear your winter toboggan under it for your warmth. I also keep a spare battery in my pocket. The cap clip is good in concept but I had a hard time with balance on the bill while walking it kept wanting to shift but I have no hair to keep the cap from sliding forward from the camera weighting down the bill lol!
