    I have one. Do not use your iWhatever to film an airsoft game. Those things are not made to last. Get a cheaper durable camera for extreme sports instead. The cheaper ones would run you less than trying to make an iPod mount.

    Either risk it with tape and homemade items, or get a gopro. (I'm cheap and would probably stick with building one.) Get a big piece of styrofoam, put the ipod behind it and cut a small hole for the camera. cover the hole with transparent duct tape. then use the tape to connect with the gun and pm me the links to the videos.

    Not after being wrapped with transparent duct tape. I have tested this with a 380 FPS gas pistol, it only occasionally left dents. and if it were tucked into a pocket, say on your vest, only the small camera section could pop out. If you want to spend a little more money, place it (styrofoam and all) behind a small piece of metal.

    Or get a hard shell some duck tape and a cheapo soft shell and do what you said.

    You could sucurly hook it inside one of you magazine pouches. Then cut a hole on the front of the pouch for the camera to see through.

    Buy some clear plexiglass from Home Depot. The tape it to the front. Lens and iPod protected. But its stupid to use your iPod. It WILL get shot, and you WILL get angry. Something WILL happen. Just buy some $50 camera from Wal-Mart, and you'll be fine.
