I got a Unity Tactical Knuckl helmet mount so I could manage the side attachments on my helmet. The Knuckl Mount attaches to either Ops Core, Team Wendy, and Crye Precision rails. Most people utilize the Contour action camera and the Knuckl mount has a dedicated attachment point for the Contour.
I do not have a Contour camera but I do have GoPro cameras. I acquired a GoPro Hero4 Session last December when they went on sale for $199.99. I find the smaller Session camera to be very handy due to the smaller body size. Using an old GoPro rail mount I was able to position the GoPro Hero4 Session on the Knuckl mount rail and keep it as streamlined as possible.
Here is the mount before I installed the GoPro rail mount. The Knuckl mount is actually on a modified ball joint so you can swivel the whole mount 360 deg to adjust the angle. This works well when you are using a light, like the scoutlight I have mounted. That way you can direct the light where you want to go. In terms of using a camera, when you cheek a rifle often you will need to reposition the camera to get a better angle.
GoPro rail mount intalled. You can find various GoPro picatinny rail mounts online. This one was a prototype made by Strikemark.
Here is a screen shot from the GoPro camera mounted to the helmet.
