What a great article, and a way of saving money on mounts. Thanks for the tips.


Thanks for the compilation, for (12) with the rigging equiptment, they are using triangulation with multiple points of contact. It will generally give far superior footage compared to mounting with a single contact point as it effectively reduced vibration and movement. (There is of course bike movement which is even more complicated to eliminate). The alternative is an on-body mount which is the best although the angle and body movement create a different style video footage.


Thanks for this. It's a shame that not all action cameras have as many mounting accessories as the GoPro

I use a basic right angle mount (also called binocular mount) fastened to anything with a bolt hole; i.e. fork dropout, light/reflector mount.

Some really good ideas here. Sometimes, we need to supply a bolt onto which the camera is mounted -the tripod mount. But finding that size is difficult (1/4-inch 20-tpi BSW thread style, aka 1/4"-20 BSW).

Any ideas where to find threaded bolt stock in the States?
