Home Mounts and Tripods for Foscam Pan and Tilt Cameras

My first purchase of this brand was the Foscam FI8910W Indoor Pan/Tilt Wi-Fi Camera.  A good camera to customize but somewhat difficult to work with.  Unlike consumer oriented cameras such as a Nest Cam, these are made for customers with an IT background.  It’s not something that you can intuitively setup and get working out of the box without reading the instructions.  Even after reading the instructions, you need to poke around the internet to find things out.

Fat Gecko Camera Mounts: The Mother of all Camera Mounts

I recently discovered the Fat Gecko Camera Mount with Triple Suction Cups.  I call these the mother of all camera mounts because it’s an extremely heavy duty camera mount.  Heaviest I have seen to date.  Let’s take a look at what impressed me about Fat Gecko Camera Mounts. Fat Gecko Camera Mounts are made by a company called Delkin.  I was already familiar with Delkin because I remember buying some memory cards a long time ago for a GPS that were manufactured by Delkin.  I didn’t know they were in the mount business until I discovered Fat Gecko Camera Mounts.

Home Mounts and Tripods for the Amcrest ProHD Camera

The Amcrest ProHD Home Security Camera is one of the latest from Amcrest targeted towards home security.  The Amcrest ProHD Camera is a great piece of hardware with a so-so smartphone app.  It’s great for those that want a camera and are somewhat technical.  Not for beginners.  For a lot more information on this camera, read this detailed review. Out of the box, the Amcrest ProHD Camera is designed to sit on a desk or shelf.  This isn’t a typical home security camera.  It’s somewhat old school in design.  The lens sits within a round ball that can be swiveled and pivoted.  It … Read more…

GoPro Helmet Mounts: A Few Good Recommendations

There are lots of places to mount a GoPro.  We typically concentrate on mounts for vehicles, today we are looking at a different mounting purpose.  GoPro helmet mounts seemed strange to me when these action cameras first came out.  I didn’t think anyone would want to put anything on their helmet.  I was wrong. Today, there are many different types of GoPro helmet mounts.  Some use the weatherproof case that comes with the GoPro, others use the 1/4″ – 20 threaded tripod screw hole on the bottom of the GoPro without the weatherproof case.  I suggest using the weatherproof case. … Read more…
