Our friends at Arkon have introduced a new line of camera mounts for almost any location and they are available at a very reasonable price. There are two keys to making a useful camera mount. Almost every tripod has a 1/4″ – 20 threaded post that fits that little threaded hole on the bottom of the camera. It also needs to be constructed to keep steady in a mobile environment. Arkon has all that figured and has delivered with their new camera line.
The progression of video cameras over the past several years has spawned a need for a variety of mounts. The Panasonics, Kodaks and Sonys have been replaced by Flip, GoPro and Contour. Great quality, smaller footprint. All of these cameras have a 1/4″ – 20 component, in a few cases you may need to buy a mounting cradle, but you will find most models are ready to mount. Just look for that threaded hole on the bottom.
