Shane, an "L" shaped plate holding the camera on one end and fixed by both of the reel mounts will really be strong imo. Why dont you try just folding an aluminum bracket of 1mm or 2mmin that size..

ps: you can drill some holes on it to make it even lighter...

Hey guys,

I just sent Fuzz te pics of the gu mount so he can post them.

Aydyn, I ahve made some good footage already.


Filmed the capture of 2 AJ a Sargo and a mullet. Trying to find a way to reduce the size of the mpegs. Memo is helping me out. He has seen one of the clips.

Juat came back from testing the bracket. Managed to film to shots at AJ which i missed, The camera mount is changing the shot, and from the recoil of the tahiti i have bent the aluminium plate.

Filmed a Dentex but it did not come in range :( Can just barely see it in the footage. Also filmed a big Sunfish

I think i have to revisit the drawing board. Maybe out of stainless steel or CARBON :p the plate will rock.

In the meantime i will continue to use the camera in the left hand.

why don't you mount it on your forearm, like the Dapiran did...it seems really good solution.

just saw the pictures and noticed that you can not mount this forearm easily. But you better to mount it to the other side of the gun for better field of vision;)

you can try to glue/mount some wood below the alluminium plate to offset the weight of camera and a plate or extend the plate to the other side of the gun horizontally and put some weight until you establish the balance, this way you will be able to shoot better, less efect on the parts due to recoil and not confusing moments of video during shoot coz of the recoil.

Thanks for the info Murat,

My first job ios to get a stiffer bracket.

I am searching for a CF plate in my rowing club. Lets see if i can find one if not i will use stainless steel

The shot came out suprisingly well although i missed the fish :D

hi....

you dont have to reduce the size, we can open our ftp server and you will upload to the ftp server all the videos that you want.
I can open one if you like and you will upload the videos into the server and everybody could go there and download the pics and the clips.
