Mounts and Stands for the Samsung Gear 360 Camera

The Samsung Gear 360 camera is a great camera from a company that has a history of innovative products besides cool phones.  This 360-degree camera allows a 360 complete capture at the push of a button.  The Samsung Gear 360 mounting option is enabled using an industry standard 1/4″ – 20 threaded screw hole.  This screw hole is common to a tripod as well as many camera mounts. The Samsung Gear 360 weighs in at a little less than six ounces.  That’s fairly light but the camera itself isn’t fairly inexpensive so choose a mount that is well made and will … Read more

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.
