Camera Mounting and Aiming
Camera Mounting and Aiming
Mount on Dual Track System
The XTC300 was innovatively designed with an identical dual track
mount system on either side of the camera. This allows you to mount it
on both sides of a helmet with ease. In addition, the main mount piece is
interchangeable and can be moved from the helmet mount to the goggle
mount. This eliminates the hassle of having to remount the camera
every time.
To mount the camera on the main mount piece, slide the camera onto
the dual track system with the two notches on the mount facing towards
the back of the camera.
To detach the camera from the main mount, hold the camera with the
lens facing away from you. Press down the mount release switch and pull
the mount towards yourself.
Mount using the Thread Mount
On the bottom of the XTC300 is a standard thread mount that allows
the camera to be mounted to a tripod or other fixture with a 1/4-20
(1/4” diameter, 20 threads per inch) 5/16 deep thread. The vented
helmet strap mount is a screw type mount. To affix the camera, insert
the screw on the mount into the camera thread and rotate the camera
clockwise to tighten down onto the screw.
Over tightening may cause damage
to the mount and/or camera

1. Press and hold the micro SD reformat button.
2. Move the RECORD switch to the on position
3. Keep the micro SD card reformat button down until the SD card indicator
begins blinking green.
