While looking for GoPro action camera options for videotaping old car events, I came across mounts for Smart phones.

Below is a $17 phone mount, with my iPhone 5 clamped in. It doesn't have the stabilize feature of a GoPro, but my understanding is that the iPhone 6plus does have a video stabilize feature. This might be a good alternative for those of us with (not so)smart phones. The mount fits on standard GoPro mounting hardware.

Still from iPhone video:


I don't expect anyone to watch the ten minute video, but a video clip I took Saturday evening with the iPhone. Imagine twenty or thirty of these on different cars at the Old Car Festival during the Gaslight Parade:

Maybe some foam over the microphone is in order but a good idea. :-)

G.R., I've noticed with either GoPro or iPhone the wind noise is bad. I may have to look into an external mic, although I have no experience with them.
