Camera Mount

Alright chaps,

Offshore at the moment, and trying to think of ways to spend money.....

What would be the best camera mount that i can bolt/clamp on to one of the flat horizontal plates on the top of my a-frame, for filming waterskiiers/helmsman. would need to be something that was adjustable, tilt and swivel, with the ability to clamp hard to support the weight of the camera against the movement of the boat.

I am currently using an olympus Utough camera, which has a fair bit of weight in it. Ill keep using that until i can justify a gopro!



I think i'll buy a boat*

*I think i'll buy a boat and then spend the rest of my life trying to afford to keep it

I had an idea for making a remote operated mount using one of these on the A-frame...


Definately on the (growing) list of bits for the new boat.

I also use the Manfrotto clamp. Excellent piece of kit. Very solid. Simple to use, and a good price. Don't forget the spigot to attach to the camera!
