Anyone know of an Action Cam mount that can quickly, and easily, rotate 180 degs?

I fancy being able to quickly switch the camera from front to back view... without having to stop and re-align everything.

Uncle Albert found a motorised unit, but that wasn't really what I was after.

I just ordered this: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Xiaomi-Yi-accessories-Universal-Camera-Clamp- Roll-Bar-Seat-Mount-bike-For-Gopro-hero-2/1807013_32375568208.html
(But ordered from Amazon here - the pictures are not as good though: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Camera-Clamp-Tripod-Bicycle-Motorcycle/dp/B00FDKEUOE )

mount

It says it can rotate, but the simple clip function may be ideal for what I need - quickly change from rear pointing to front...

Got the new mount a while back - it's perfect.
The point where the swivel part attaches the the actual clamp is sprung-loaded, so you can just 'pull' and rotate to any other angle, without removing the clamp from where ever it is mounted!

I can do this while still strapped into the 7!

Have you seen this before 360 cam best seen on a I phone gives full view all around in HD.
Great shots.

Yeah - if you Google '360' or 'VR' (Virtual Reality) cameras you will find loads of examples.
The issue is the image quality is either low, or the data rate is exceptionally high.

But, it has potential.
I have been watching the cost of the camera drop, and will probably get one at some point...
