a little bit down there was a discussion about taking pictures while riding a coaster.i like videos better because videos are more exciting than pictures.i have taken videos while riding a coaster.what i do is i hide the camera inside the bag & i take the camera out of the bag after the train leaves the station.the only problem is that on some roller coasters the ride operators don,t allow me to take the bag with me.the ride operators don,t know about that i was videotaping on the ride until the ride is over & then for some added excitement i videotape the ride operators screaming at me for videotaping on the ride.the only thing is that one of the times when this happened they told me that the next time i do that my video camera will be confiscated.

Well personally, I dont agree with people videotaping onrides, because lets just say for some reason, you lose control of the videocamera and it ends up injuring a rider behind you (assuming your in the front seat taping) or it falls and hurts someone below....A camera is one thing but a videocamera is another story.

generally when i videotape while riding what i do is i have a camera strap tied to my belt where the other end is attached to the camera.so that just in case i do drop the camera(where from all the times that i have videotaped on a roller coaster this has not happened yet)the camera can not go too far from me.

try and get a hold of one of those tiny cameras and strap it around your head.
